Gout Overview

Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis characterized by recurrent attacks of a red, tender, hot, and swollen joint.[3] Pain typically comes on rapidly in less than twelve hours.[5] The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases.[6] It may also result in tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy.[5] Gout is due to elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. This occurs due to a combination of diet and genetic factors. At high levels, uric acid crystallizes and the cr...

The RX changed my allopurinol 300 white AX pill to allopurinol 300 orange N021 pills. It seems like a different effect to me. How do the pills differ upon pulling up ingredients?

My local dispensers tell me 100 mg tablets are no longer available from any manufacturer, even though the 300 mg tablets are still available. Does anyone know anything about this? ## My husband just had bunion surgery this morning and the doctor informed us he also found gout when the toe was opened however, you say your local dispensers tell you that 100 mg tables are not longer available but I had to pick up a RX for him when he left the hospital and it was for Allopurinol 100mg. We got it filled at a wal-greens pharmacy ## AS of November 6, 2014, Express-Scripts does not have ANY Allopurinol 300 mg OR 100 mg. The E-S druggist told me that they haven't had any 300 mg since January 2014. The customer service at E-S told me to get it at a local pharmacy and then deleted my prescript...

I started on allopurinol 100 mg tab in oct since then have gained 25lbs. Anyone else have this happen? ## Hello, LaceyLu! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. According to the FDA, Allopurinol is used to treat excess uric acid and it has been reported to cause rapid weight gain in a small percentage of people that take it. Other side effects may possibly include sore throat, nausea, dizziness, bruising and joint stiffness. Have you spoken to your doctor? It might not be the right medication for you to take. ## I am on 200 mg a day, I didn't notice until I saw your post, but I have gained 50# in 2 years. I thought I was overeating but I actually eat weather and don't hardly ever eat junk or fast food. I will definitely be bringing this up with...

capsule N020 white
2 Replies RSS
Found this pill in my nephews pocket but cant find it any where online. It. Is a white capsule with "N020" on it and nothing else and it it is not the anti-diarrhea pill ## Allopurinol made by NorthStar Rx bears the same color & imprint "N020", except that their pill is round and not a capsule. However, drug manufacturers have been known to make alterations to their products without any prior notice to the public/patients. For this reason alone, I think it would still be a good idea to contact NorthStar Rx directly, just to ensure that you've covered all angles. NOTE: Allopurinol is used to treat gout and kidney stones. Have you spoke with your nephew yet to help shed any light on the subject? Whether he's telling the truth or not, at least we'd have some...

I have a round red pill with G2 imprinted on it. Can this be used for pain related to gout and swelling? ## This tablet is manufactured by Rugby and they list it as containing 200mgs of Ibuprofen, a generic or store brand of Advil, or Motrin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and stomach irritation. Is there anything else I can help with?
