Uloric contains the generic medicinal ingredient called febuxostat. Uloric lowers the levels of uric acid in the blood and prevents attacks of gout.
Excessive uric acid in the blood leads to a build-up of uric acid crystals in the joints, which causes the pain and inflammation of gout. Doctors prescribe Uloric to lower uric acid levels in order to avoid painful attacks of gout.
Uloric works by blocking the formation of uric acid in the body. Uric acid is produced by an enzyme called xanthine oxidase. Uloric belongs to the class of medications called xanthine oxidase inhibitors. As the name suggests, Uloric inhibits xanthine oxidase, thereby lowering the production of uric acid.
The recommended dose of Uloric is one 80mg tablet taken orally once daily. Uloric can be taken with or without food. Do not stop taking this medication without first consulting your doctor, even if you have a flare. Uloric can be taken with antacids.
These may not be all the side effects of Uloric 80mg.
Do not take this medication if you are allergic to it or any of its ingredients. You should not use this medication if you are taking azathioprine or mercaptopurine.
Before you use Uloric, talk to your doctor if you have a history of liver or kidney problems, heart disease, heart problems or had a stroke.
Store at room temperature (15°C to 30°C or 59°F to 86°F), away from light. Keep Uloric and all medicines out of the reach of children
Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by sudden attacks of pain, usually in the joint of the big toe. Gout is caused by too much uric acid in the blood that leads to a build-up of urate crystals in the joints. It is these crystals that cause the characteristic pain and inflammation of gout. Typically, uric acid dissolves in your blood, passes through your kidneys and is excreted in your urine. Sometimes your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys excrete too little uric acid. When this happens, uric acid accumulates, forming sharp, needle-like urate crystals in a joint or surrounding tissue that cause pain, inflammation and swelling. Symptoms include intense joint pain, inflammation, redness and decreased joint mobility. Often, the first gout attack is at night, waking the patient with extreme pain near the joint of the big toe. Gout may also attack ankles, heels, wrists, fingers, knees and elbows. Affecting about one to two percent of the Western population, gout is more common in men. In severe cases, high levels of uric acid can cause kidney stones, kidney tubule blockages or permanent damage to the kidneys.
