Allopurinolum review





Allopurinolum is the generic name 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. It can also be used to treat people who have calcium disorders that result in high levels of daily uric acid. Allopurinolum is available in pill form or as an injection.

The most common side effect of Allopurinolum is a rash, which can range mild to fatal. It is recommended that treatment with Allopurinolum be stopped immediately if a rash develops. In addition, if an allergic reaction develops or if you experience painful or bloody micturition, you should discontinue use of Allopurinolum. Other severe but less common side effects can include fever, chills, jaundice, and either an increase or a decrease in white blood cells. Other known side effects can include diarrhoea, nausea or emesis, an increase in the alakaline levels in the blood, an increase in acute attacks of gout, cephalalgia, inflammation of the blood vessels, liver disorders, abdominal pain, inflammation of the stomach, upset stomach, muscle disorders, nerve inflammation, numbness, tingling, or prickling sensations of the skin, sleepiness, nosebleeds, 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, rhinorrhea, sweating, cataracts, eye infections, impotence or male infertility. In some cases, taking antibiotics at the same time as Allopurinolum can increase the negative side effects. Consult your doctor immediately if you experience any of the above conditions.

It is important during treatment with Allopurinolum 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 Allopurinolum at the proper levels. It often takes from two to six weeks to experience optimal results, so if you do not experience immediate relief of your gout, do not stop taking the medication. It is recommended that you take your Allopurinolum after meals in order to minimize stomach irritation.

Allopurinolum 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 Allopurinolum 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 Allopurinolum outweigh any possible negative effects for you or your baby. Allopurinolum 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, Allopurinolum may be indicated for pediatric use.
