I started having shorteness of breath when I took my pills a week ago, so I started taking my pills one at a time to see if they caused it. I have problems with Allopurinol, and potassium pills. I recently doubled my potassium, and my doctor cut it back down to 1 pill, so hopefully this takes care of the problem with potassium.
However when I took the Allopurinol, I also had shortness of breath for about 45 minutes 3 days in a row.
None of the other pills cause a problem. I have been taking them for 10 years. The potassium was only doubled recently, and has been lowered as I said.
I am wondering if anyone has had an issue with shortness of breath from the Allopurinol, if they take it for gout. I take 300 mg, and have not had an issue. No problem from December-February. Now I wake up , go walk an hour at gym, come home, have breakfast, and take just the Allopurinol, and 10 minutes later, I am wheezing a bit. Not dangerously short of breath, just uncomfortable. If I skip the Allopurinol, I am fine.
