Gout is a very serious type of arthritis that develops due to too much uric acid in the body. The use of Allopurinol can help to reduce those levels so that they arenít going to create sharp crystals in the joints that are extremely painful. This type of medication is classified as Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitor. It is able to cut down the amount of uric acid so that gout outbreaks are reduced. It is important to note that this medication wonít do anything to help clear up gout once it is in place though.

For individuals that experience gout often, the use of Allopurinol can be a solution. This medication needs to be taken daily though to work at its full potential. It should be taken right after a meal. Individuals with severe gout problems may need to take it twice per day. Donít skip any dose and donít take more of this medication than your doctor tells you to.

The lowest possible dose is going to be given of Allopurinol initially. Then you can work with your doctor to evaluate what has taken place. If it is deemed necessary, the dose will be increased to offer you more benefits. It is important to note that it can take a few months of use before the full benefits are realized.

Some patients actually will experience an increase in their gout attacks when they start taking Allopurinol. Your doctor can offer another medication so that you will be able to deal with the pain of such outbreaks as they occur. Donít stop taking it though as in the end it can really help you.

Many people experience drowsiness when they take Allopurinol. Never operate a vehicle or machinery until you know how it will affect you. If you do get drowsy, take it at night when you are home for the evening instead of during the day.
