Allo-Puren review

Zyloprim, the brand name for Allo-Puren 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. It can also be used to treat people who have calcium disorders that result in high levels of daily uric acid. Allo-Puren can be given in pill form or as an injection.

The most common side effect of Allo-Puren is a skin rash that can be mild to fatal. If a rash develops, it is recommended that treatment with Allo-Puren be stopped immediately. If an allergic reaction develops or if you experience painful or bloody urination then you should also discontinue use of Allo-Puren.

Other severe but less common known side effects include fever, chills, jaundice, and either an increase or a decrease in white blood cells. Additional known side effects include diarrhoea, nausea or vomiting, an increase in the alakaline levels in the blood, an increase in acute attacks of gout, headache, inflammation of the blood vessels, liver disorders, abdominal pain, inflammation of the stomach, and upset stomach. You may also experience muscle disorders, nerve inflammation, numbness, tingling, or prickling sensations of the skin, sleepiness, nosebleeds, baldness, human immunodeficiency viruses, red spots, skin sensitivity, loss or distortion of taste, kidney failure, swelling of the tongue, loss of appetite, weakness, decreased libido, asthma, rhinorrhea, perspiration, cataracts, eye infections, impotence or male infertility. Occasionally, taking antibiotics at the same time as Allo-Puren can increase the negative side effects. You should consult your doctor if you have any of these reactions.

It is important that while taking Allo-Puren you drink enough water to produce two liters of urine every day. This will help in reducing the likelihood of kidney stones and will help with the absorption of the medicament by your body. If you do not experience immediate relief of your gout, do not stop taking Allo-Puren, since it often takes from two to six weeks to experience optimal results. It is recommended that you take your Allo-Puren after meals in order to minimize stomach irritation.

Allo-Puren 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 Allo-Puren 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 Allo-Puren outweigh any possible negative effects for you or your baby. Allo-Puren 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 these cases, Allo-Puren may be indicated for pediatric use.
