Drug Uses

Zyloprim is used for treating gout. It is used to treat high uric acid levels in the blood or urine caused by certain types of cancer chemotherapy. It is also used to treat certain patients with calcium oxalate kidney stones and high amounts of uric acid in the urine. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

How to use

Use Zyloprim as directed by your doctor. Check the label on the medicine for exact dosing instructions.
Take Zyloprim by mouth after meals to decrease stomach upset.
Drinking extra fluids while you are taking Zyloprim is recommended. Check with your doctor for instructions. Continue to take Zyloprim even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses.
If you miss a dose of Zyloprim , take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.

Drug Class and Mechanism

Zyloprim is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor. It works by lowering the body's production of uric acid.
Uric acid is a breakdown product of purines in foods. Uric acid forms crystals in the tissues of the body to cause the inflammation of gout. Elevated blood uric acid levels can also cause kidney disease and stones. Allopurinol can be used to prevent uric acid kidney stones and to prevent recurrent gouty arthritis attacks.

Missed Dose

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the dose you missed and take only your next regularly scheduled dose. Do not take a double dose of this medication.

Storage

Store at 15-25 degrees C (59-77 degrees F) in a dry place and protect from light.
