Allopurinol is the active ingredient in Zyloprim, which is a brand name medication that treats gout and kidney stones. It is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor.
Excess amounts of uric acid can lead to painful side effects like gout or kidney stones. This medication inhibits the production of uric acid so that it does not build up in certain patients who cannot manage this process themselves. There are several reasons why a person can get elevated levels of uric acid, such as certain illnesses, diet and heredity.
Normally, uric acid which is produced from many foods that people eat (especially proteins) is excreted from the body. In cases where there is too much uric acid in the system, Zyloprim helps by stopping the action of a certain enzyme which is involved in the production of uric acid.
Depending on your particular condition, the daily dose – taken orally – can be up to 800mg daily. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully. Larger daily dosages (more than 300mg) can be divided throughout the day.
This medication is generally well tolerated. Common side effects include:
These may not be all the side effects of Zyloprim 300mg.
Zyloprim should not be given to children. Do not take this medication if you have a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. If you develop a skin rash, this may be a sign of hypersensitivity. Talk to your doctor if you are breastfeeding before taking this medication. Zyloprim should not be taken if are currently suffering from an acute attack of gout.
Alcohol may decrease the efficacy of Zyloprim. Tell your doctor if you have liver disease, kidney disease, diabetes, or high blood pressure. This medication may make you drowsy so refrain from activities where alertness is needed.
Protect this medication from moisture and store at room temperature. Keep Zyloprim out of the reach of children.
Gout is a painful inflammation of certain joints and is a form of arthritis. An attack can come on quite suddenly. Symptoms include extremely tender, red, painful, inflamed joints, especially at the base of the big toe. This condition is caused by a buildup of uric acid which forms into crystals and press on the tender areas around a joint. Men are more likely to get gout.
Due to various conditions like diet and heredity, some people have excess uric acid which form crystals in the kidneys. These crystals vary in size and can become problematic. When they are large and interfere with normal urination as they pass from the kidney to the bladder and out the urethra, they could cause extreme pain. Symptoms may include discoloured urine (pink, red, brown), cloudy urine, and severe pain in the side and back, below the ribs.
