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?

Small White Round Pill With B on one side and 20 on the other

This pill was found in my backyard after a party... It has no scoring on it and is round and smooth... ## The pill is Allopurinol. The primary use of allopurinol is to treat hyperuricemia (excess uric acid in blood plasma) and its complications. Allopurinol does not alleviate acute attacks of gout, but is useful in chronic gout to prevent future attacks. If someone is partying with this pill, they will be disappointed for sure. ## Hi I have some tablets that are white and round small they have mp60 on one side and nothing on the other . The packet has only one word metweat

I have found 2 different pills in with some of my other meds. Both are small, round and both white 1) with AW and scored on back. 2) same except M on front and R11 on back. I thought his generic pills had changed and put in same bottle ## Hello, Meme! How are you? The white one with the AW marking is manufactured by Accord Healthcare and they list it as containing 100mgs of Allopurinol, it is most commonly used to treat gout. The one with the M R11 marking is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 1mgs of Risperidone, which is used to treat various mental health issues. The FDA lists the side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, somnolence, and weight gain. Are these medications he usually takes?
