Allopurinol

Drug Info for allopurinol

Allopurinol is used to treat gout (a type of arthritis in which uric acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body, builds up in the joints and causes sudden attacks of redness, swelling, pain, and heat in one or more joints). Allopurinol is also used to treat high levels of uric acid that builds up in the blood as tumors break down in people with certain types of cancer who are being treated with chemotherapy medications. It is also used to treat kidney stones that have come back in people who have high levels of uric acid in their urine. Allopurinol is in a class of medications called xanthine oxidase inhibitors. It works by reducing the production of uric acid in the body. High levels of uric acid may cause gout attacks or kidney stones. Allopurinol is used to prevent gout attacks, not to treat them once they occur.

Zyloprim is used to treat gout in patients undergoing chemotherapy. It is also used to treat kidney stones and other conditions as prescribed by your doctor. Zyloprim works by reducing the high levels of uric acid in the body. It is indicated for use by adults as an oral tablet.

Store the medicine in a closed container at room temperature, away from heat, moisture, and direct light.

Drink extra fluids so you will urinate more often and help prevent kidney problems. Drink about 10 to 12 full glasses of water each day, unless otherwise directed by your doctor.
