High Uric Acid Level

After my first uric acid stone when I checked my uric acid level it was at higher marigin 7.2. My urologist suggested febuxostat tablet which I took for 2 months with strict low purine diet plan. Now my uric acid level came down to 4.8. But my urologist is suggesting to take febuxostat for my lifetime. Is it advicable?
