Allopurinol 300mg

Gout is a type of arthritis, and it is very painful. The more you get outbreaks, the more painful they become. The use of Allopurinol can help to prevent future outbreaks. This is because it works to reduce the amount of uric acid that the body creates. Gout pain and inflammation is the result of the uric acid building and then sharp crystals form in the joints.

It is important to understand that once you have an outbreak, you canít rely on this medicine to help you to conquer it. You will need to work with your doctor regarding other medications to reduce the pain and inflammation. Ironically, the use of Allopurinol may increase your gout outbreaks initially. However, over the use of it daily for several months you will notice they arenít as severe and they stop being as frequent.

Allopurinol is a type of medication known as a Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitor. This medication works best when you donít skip any doses. You never want to decrease your dose or increase it on your own. If you find that the dose isnít working for you, consult with your doctor.

Never stop taking this medication suddenly without the approval of your doctor. They may be able to increase it for you. Taking this medicine after a meal is best. This medication is often used along with other forms of medication in order to best treat all the variables of gout attacks.

That will reduce the risk of nausea or vomiting occurring. Headaches and fatigue may occur with this medication initially. Many people find that Allopurinol makes them drowsy so you want to take it when you wonít be driving or working. It isnít safe to drive a vehicle or to use any types of machinery until you know how this medication is going to affect you.
