This is a brand name medication. The generic version of Zyloprim is allopurinol, which is a purine analog that treats gout and kidney stones by inhibiting the enzyme xanthine oxidase.
Your doctor may have prescribed this medication to treat gout, kidney stones, or to prevent the buildup of excessive uric acid. It is also used to reduce the levels of uric acid in patients who have cancer such as leukemia and lymphoma.
Xanthine oxidase is an enzyme that naturally produces uric acid in the body during the normal digestive process of many foods. Zyloprim inhibits this enzyme from making uric acid. Excessive uric acid can lead to painful conditions like gout and kidney stones.
Take the tablets orally with food. Depending on your condition, the dose may range from 100mg to 800mg daily. If you need to take more than 300mg per day, divide the dose throughout the day.
Most side effects can be managed but speak to your doctor if they are concerning to you:
These may not be all the side effects of Zyloprim 100mg.
Do not take this medication if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the formulation. Zyloprim should not be given to children. Talk to your doctor if you are breastfeeding.
Discuss your medical history with your doctor especially if you have liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure. Limiting your alcoholic intake is advisable since it may reduce the effectiveness of this drug.
Store at room temperature in a dry place and keep out of the reach of children.
Gout is the most common side effect caused by an excess amount of uric acid in the body. Uric acid is naturally formed during the breakdown of purines which are found in many foods. Some people are unable to efficiently get rid of uric acid and the buildup causes painful crystals which accumulate, commonly in the area of the big toe. Symptoms include painful, red, inflamed joints. The kidneys’ inability to remove excess uric acid is partly determined by heredity but other things such as diet and sudden illnesses may play a role.
Another side effect of excess uric acid is the formation of kidney stones. Kidney stones are formed when uric acid crystallizes in the kidneys and stays there in the form of various-sized stones. Symptoms include extreme pain and blood in the urine because the stones get caught in the tubules of the urinary tract. Once you get kidney stones, they are likely to reoccur. Caucasian males, between the ages of 30 and 60, who have high blood pressure and a family history of kidney stones are most at risk.
