The active medicinal ingredient in Zyloprim is allopurinol which inhibits the enzyme xanthine oxidase that is responsible for the production of uric acid.
Your doctor may have prescribed this medication to reduce the amount of uric acid in your blood. If there is a buildup of uric acid, certain conditions like gout and kidney stones may occur. The body’s inability to efficiently remove uric acid from the system can be due to a variety of reasons like certain illnesses, diet and heredity.
Uric acid is produced naturally in the body by an enzyme called xanthine oxidase. Zyloprim inhibits this enzyme from making too much uric acid. Side effects of excessive uric acid include gout and kidney stones which are very painful conditions.
Your doctor will prescribe the dosage that is appropriate for your particular condition and severity. Dosages can range from 100mg to 800mg per day. If your daily dose is more than 300mg, you will likely need to divide it up throughout the day. This medication is taken orally and is generally better tolerated with food.
Most side effects are minor and can be managed. Common side effects include:

Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by painful, inflamed joints, especially at the base of the big toe. Other joints that can be affected are ankles, knees, wrists, fingers, and elbows. When the body is unable to remove excess uric acid, it may accumulate in crystals which cause painful swelling in certain joints. Most people with gout will experience repeated attacks over the years. The incidence of gout has risen over the years and now affects nearly ten million Americans.
Most uric acid is filtered through the kidneys and passes out of your system. Some people, due to various reasons, cannot manage the level of uric acid. When excess uric acid crystallizes in the kidneys and forms pebble-like formations, it is called kidney stones. Kidney stones may interfere with normal urination as they pass from the kidney to the bladder and out the urethra. Symptoms may include discoloured urine, cloudy urine, and severe pain in the side or back.
