Allural is the generic name for Zyloprim. It is prescribed for patients who have primary or secondary gout, and for patients with elevated levels of serum and urinary acidic levels, such as those receiving cancer treatments for leukemia and lymphoma. Allural can also be used to treat people who have calcium disorders that result in high levels of daily uric acid. It comes in tablet form or as an injection.
A rash is the most common side effect of Allural. The rash can be anywhere from mild to fatal, and it is recommended that taking Allural be stopped immediately if a rash develops. In addition, if an allergic reaction develops or if you experience painful or bloody peeing, you should discontinue use of Allural. Other severe, less common side effects include fever, chills, jaundice, and either an increase or a decrease in white blood cells. In some cases, taking antibiotics at the same time as Allural can increase the negative side effects. Other known side effects can include diarrhoea, wamble or vomiting, an increase in the alakaline levels in the blood, an increase in acute attacks of gout, cephalalgia, inflammation of the blood vessels, liver disorders, stomach ache, inflammation of the stomach, upset stomach, muscle disorders, nerve inflammation, numbness, tingling, or prickling sensations of the skin, sleepiness, epistaxiss, hair loss, hives, red spots, skin sensitivity, loss or distortion of taste, kidney failure, swelling of the tongue, loss of appetite, weakness, decreased libido, asthma, runny nose, sweating, cataracts, eye infections, impotence or male infertility. You should see your doctor if you develop any of these rare reactions.
It is important that while taking Allural you drink enough water to produce two liters of urine every day. This will help in the prevention of kidney stones and with your body's absorption of Allural at the proper levels. If you do not experience immediate relief of your sypmtoms, do not stop taking Allural, since it often takes from two to six weeks to experience optimal results. It is recommended that you take your Allural after meals to minimize stomach irritation.
Allural is in Pregnancy Category C, which means that it has not been shown to cause harm to developing fetuses. However, these are results from animal studies; conclusive studies have not been done on pregnant women. It has been determined that Allural passes into breast milk, but the effects on the nursing baby are not known. If you are pregnant or nursing, or plan to become pregnant or to nurse a baby, you should discuss it with your doctor to determine whether the benefits of taking Allural outweigh any possible negative effects for you or your baby. Allural is rarely prescribed for children, though there are cases in which a child may have an excess of uric acid due to cancer treatments or genetic conditions. In such situations, Allural may be indicated for pediatric use.
