Allopurinol sodium review

Allopurinol Sodium is the generic name for a medication that also goes by the brand name Zyloprim and is prescribed for patients who have primary or secondary gout. Allopurinol is also prescribed for patients with elevated levels of serum and urinary acidic levels, such as those receiving cancer treatments for leukemia and lymphoma. Finally, it can also be used to treat people who have calcium disorders that result in high levels of daily uric acid. Allopurinol Sodium can be given in tablet form or as an injection.

The most common side effect of Allopurinol Sodium is a skin rash. These rashes can be mild to very severe, even fatal, and it is recommended that treatment with Allopurinol Sodium be stopped immediately if a rash develops. In addition, if an allergic reaction develops, or if you experience painful or bloody urination, you should discontinue use of Allopurinol Sodium. Other severe but less common side effects can include pyrexia, chills, jaundice, and either an increase or a decrease in white blood cells. In some cases, taking antibiotics at the same time as Allopurinol Sodium can increase the negative side effects. Other side effects can include diarrhea, nausea or emesis, an increase in the alakaline levels in the blood, an increase in acute attacks of gout, headache, inflammation of the blood vessels, liver disorders, stomach ache, 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, skin edema of the tongue, loss of appetite, weakness, decreased libido, asthma, rhinorrhea, sweating, cataracts, eye infections, impotence or male infertility. You should see your doctor if you have any of these rare reactions.

It is important during treatment with Allopurinol Sodium that you drink enough water to produce two liters of urine every day. This will help in the prevention of kidney stones and with the absorption of Allopurinol Sodium at the proper levels. If you do not experience immediate relief of your gout, do not stop taking Allopurinol Sodium, since it often takes from two to six weeks to experience optimal results. It is recommended that you take your Allopurinol Sodium after meals in order to minimize stomach irritation.

Allopurinol Sodium is in Pregnancy Category C, which means that it has not been shown to cause harm to developing fetuses. These are, however, results from animal studies as conclusive studies have not been done on pregnant women. It has been decided that Allopurinol Sodium passes into breast milk, but the effects on the nursing baby are not yet known. If you are pregnant or nursing, or plan to become pregnant or to nurse a baby, you should consult with your doctor to determine whether the benefits of taking Allopurinol Sodium outweigh any possible negative effects for you or your baby. Allopurinol Sodium 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, Allopurinol Sodium may be used in pediatric patients.
