How do I take/use this medicine?

Take Allopurinol exactly as directed by your doctor. Do not take more or less than instructed by your doctor.

Alert your doctor if you have liver disease.

Alert your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Inform your doctor if you find that you get more frequent sudden gout attacks.

Inform your doctor if you have diabetes or hypertension and are on medications for these conditions.

Drink lots of water -- at least 8 glasses every day.

When should I not use this medicine?

Alert your doctor if you are starting Allopurinol therapy for the first time and you have a sudden gout attack.

Alert your doctor if you have ever had an allergic response (such as rashes) to Allopurinol.

Alert your doctor if you have kidney disease.

Do not take Allopurinol to relieve an acute attack of gout. Allopurinol is meant for long-term control of gout. It cannot treat an acute attack.

Are there any restrictions on the type of food I can take?

Avoid alcohol.

Avoid foods that contain a mineral known as oxalate, such as spinach, peanuts and soy products like tofu and soy milk; red meat and an excessively high calcium intake.

It is recommended to switch to a diet low in salt and simple sugars.

Why do I need this medicine?

Allopurinol is used to reduce the high level of uric acid in your body.

Build-up of uric acid in your body can cause gout, gouty arthritis, kidney or urinary tract stones. Allopurinol is used to prevent or treat these conditions.

Allopurinol is also used to treat high levels of uric acid that may occur in people with G6PD deficiency.

Allopurinol does not treat sudden gout attacks as it cannot relieve acute pain. Your doctor may give you extra medicines during the early part of Allopurinol therapy to help you cope with acute pain.

What side effects could I experience?

Allopurinol may cause drowsiness or dizziness. If you feel drowsy or dizzy, do not drive or take part in any activity which requires you to be alert.

Allopurinol may cause an itchy skin rash. If you develop rashes, stop Allopurinol at once and alert your doctor. Do not restart Allopurinol unless your doctor has told you to do so.

Allopurinol may also cause diarrhoea, stomach pain, nausea and bloating. Alert your doctor if you develop this.

Less common side effects of Allopurinol are fever, headache, nerve pain, pain during urination, blood in the urine, swelling of the eyes, lips or mouth. Alert your doctor if you experience any of these side effects.
