Common symptoms of gout are a sudden onset of intense pain in a single joint, usually in the lower body and most commonly in the big toe, localized swelling and inflammation caused by the needle-like uric acid crystals, redness and a feeling of being warm to the touch, and decreased joint mobility.
PlushCare doctors can prescribe prescription strength NSAIDs (e.g. celecoxib, meloxicam) to reduce inflammation and treat gout. Prescriptions, such as allopurinol, colchicine, and febuxostat, are also available to help control the levels of uric acid in the blood.
Foods to avoid for gout include alcohol (especially beer), high fructose corn syrup, red meat, organ meat, oily fish, mussels, and scallops.
PlushCare doctors can prescribe Meloxicam for gout after completing a video consultation with patients to diagnose and treat gout.
The top prescription medications for gout include Allopurinol (Aloprim, Zyloprim) which reduces the levels of uric acid in the blood. Other medications, such as Colchicine (Colcrys, Mitigare), Febuxostat (Uloric), and Indomethacin (Indocin, Tivorbex), are prescribed to reduce inflammation, reduce uric acid production, and provide pain relief.
