Apo-Allopurinol review

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

The most common side effect of Apo-Allopurinol is a rash, which can be anywhere from mild to fatal. It is recommended that treatment with Apo-Allopurinol 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 Apo-Allopurinol. Severe but less common side effects often 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 Apo-Allopurinol can increase the negative side effects. Other side effects include diarrhoea, wamble 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, 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, epistaxiss, baldness, hives, red spots, skin sensitivity, loss or distortion of taste, kidney failure, skin edema of the tongue, loss of appetite, weakness, decreased libido, asthma, rhinorrhea, perspiration, cataracts, eye infections, impotence or male infertility. Consult with your doctor if any of the above conditions arise.

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

Apo-Allopurinol is in Pregnancy Category C. 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 is known that Apo-Allopurinol 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 Apo-Allopurinol outweigh any possible negative effects for you or your baby. Apo-Allopurinol 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, Apo-Allopurinol may be indicated for pediatric use.
