I posted on this thread back in May. It seems I should have read all the previous posts rather than just the post I was replying to.

My post was pre-surgery, when my gout was virtually non-existent. Since surgery I have had the occasional bout of gout, which has been puzzling as previously baking soda kept it away.
My initial suspicion was the bisoprolol,and you'll certain find the odd website linking them.
Only last night, when I was googling another aspect of aspirin, did I see links connecting 'baby' aspirin and increased gout.
"In conclusion, our study findings suggest that low-dose aspirin use is associated with an almost twofold increased risk of recurrent gout attacks."

This seems far more likely.
This leaves me with a quandary. See the aspirin as unnecessary long-term, or get alluprinol added to my medication ? Aspirin is not risk-free :
