Allopurinol is a drug used in the treatment of gout disease that is caused by monosodium urate crystal deposition in body tissues. It is also known to be used in the treatment of specific kidney stones and reduction of uric acid crystals which might form due to chemotherapy. It inhibits the xanthine oxidase enzyme which decreases urate production.
Keep the medicine handy to avoid gout attacks.
Consult doctor immediately in case of rashes, skin peeling or distortment, chest pain and longtime irregular bowel movement.
