What Is Allopurinol?
Allopurinol is a type of medication known as a xanthine oxidase inhibitor. It works by reducing the production of uric acid in the body. High levels of uric acid can lead to gout attacks or kidney stones.
What Is Allopurinol Used to Treat?
Allopurinol is primarily used to treat gout, a type of arthritis caused by excess uric acid in the bloodstream, which leads to the formation of hard crystals in the joints. It is also used to prevent certain types of kidney stones and during cancer treatment to prevent high levels of uric acid resulting from tumor lysis syndrome.
What Are the Common Side Effects of Allopurinol?
Common side effects of Allopurinol may include nausea, upset stomach, diarrhea, or drowsiness. In some rare instances, it can cause serious side effects such as a rash that could be indicative of a severe reaction. If any of these side effects persist or worsen, or if you notice more serious side effects like yellowing eyes or skin, dark urine, or persistent sore throat or fever, you should contact your doctor or healthcare provider right away.
