Gout Overview

Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe)[3] is a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. The metatarsal-phalangeal joint at the base of the big toe is the most commonly affected (approximately 50% of cases). It may also present as tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy. It is caused by elevated levels of uric acid in the blood. The uric acid crystallizes, and the crystals deposit...

Rumoquin N F Diclofenaco sódico 75mg Metocarbanol 200mg Dexametasona .75mg Excipiente cbp 1 tablet By Marcel Laboratories I suffer from gout so when I get an attack I take one, also heard is good for arthritis, and and of course Rheumatic diseases. My doctor said that is a drug cocktail and there is nothing like that in one pill. Take it if necessary, it won't cure any disease, it only kills and relaxes the pain/area affected. It really works ! ## The ingredients are… Diclofenac, which is classified by the FDA as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. Methocarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant and Dexamethasone, which is a steroid class medication. Thus, one shouldn't take it without their doctor's approval, because there are some risks associated with it and it may be...

Rapid weight gain while on allopurinol
3 Replies RSS
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...

works extremely well for gout or arthritis joint pain and inflammation - suppositories unfortunately work best rather than tabs ## Hello, Django! How are you? Here's hoping you're still unchained! ;-) I'm glad that this medication is working for you. Suppositories tend to be absorbed faster, so the medication works quicker and it also avoids the stomach damage and nausea that can occur from taking oral medications. This medication contains the active ingredient Indomethacin, which is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, other side effects listed by the FDA may include headache and increased risk of bleeding. Are there any questions or concerns?

Do allopurinol 100 mg,triamterene- hctz 37.5-25 mg ,and tremodol all interact ok with each other ## Hello, Dtfancy! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed between these medications in the MedScape database, but it's always best to double check such information to be certain. Tramadol is listed by the FDA as a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Triam/HCTZ is most commonly used to lower high blood pressure and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and dehydration. Allopurinol is used to treat gout and some types of kidney stones, it may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, fever and easy bruising. Is t...

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...
