Apo Allopurinol Indication

Allopurinol is an inhibitor of xanthine oxidase, a substance in the body that is responsible for the product of uric acid. It is used to prevent Gout, Kidney Stones, and kidney damage caused by uric acid. It is also used to reduce the levels of uric acid in the blood that occur because of blood disorders associated with cancer such as leukemias and lymphomas.

Apo Allopurinol may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Apo Allopurinol may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Apo Allopurinol may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Apo Allopurinol for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Apo Allopurinol, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Apo Allopurinol without consulting your doctor.

Apo Allopurinol Dosage

The recommended dose ranges from 100 mg to 800 mg daily in 1 to 3 divided doses, depending on the condition being treated. Take allopurinol after eating, to help minimize upset stomach.

Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Apo Allopurinol Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should take Apo Allopurinol.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Apo Allopurinol may cause drowsiness, affecting your ability to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other potentially hazardous tasks until you have determined how you are affected by Apo Allopurinol.

Use appropriate caution if you plan to do activities requiring alertness.

Gout: Do not start allopurinol treatment until an acute attack of gout has completely subsided, as further attacks may be caused by Apo Allopurinol. Acute gout attacks may occur at the start of treatment with allopurinol for people who have not taken the medication before. If an acute gout attack develops after starting Apo Allopurinol, call your doctor.

Hypersensitivity syndrome: A Anaphylaxis (severe allergic reaction) called hypersensitivity syndrome has occurred for some people with the use of allopurinol. This reaction involves a number of organs in the body and may be fatal if not treated quickly. Stop taking the medication and get immediate medical attention if you have symptoms of a severe allergic reaction, including fever, swollen glands, yellowing of the skin or eyes, or flu-like symptoms with skin rash or blistering.

Kidney function: Kidney Disease or reduced kidney function may cause Apo Allopurinol to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have reduced kidney function or kidney disease, discuss with your doctor how Apo Allopurinol may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Allopurinol, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: Allopurinol may reduce liver function and can cause liver failure. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Apo Allopurinol may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Allopurinol, and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Apo Allopurinol.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Skin rash: If you develop a skin rash, stop taking Apo Allopurinol and contact your doctor. The skin rash may be the first sign of a serious allergic reaction to the medication.

Pregnancy: Allopurinol is not recommended for women who are or may become pregnant unless the potential benefits outweigh the possible risks. If you are or may be pregnant, talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of Apo Allopurinol.

Breast-feeding: Apo Allopurinol passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking allopurinol, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.
