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.[4] The joint at the base of the big toe is affected in about half of cases.[8] It may also result in tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy.[4] 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...

Was put on tecta for that, am allergic to it, only on one week caused hives, itching, dizziness sometimes with spinning vertigo, so no more of that one. I am wondering if anyone with these problems had them lessen when changing to uloric. It is supposed to have fewer side effects.

Help small Yellow Round Pill blank on one side other side has o 0.6
2 Replies RSS
it is a small yellow round pill with a half way cut line on it there is a o on top of the line and 0.6 on the bottom the other side is blank. ## Hi megan, From what I could gather, a round yellow scored tablet engraved "O/0.6" contains Colchicine USP (0.6 mg); from Canada. Colchicine is in a class of medications called anti-gout agents. It works by stopping the natural processes that cause swelling and other symptoms of gout and FMF. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Colchicine Details I hope this helps! ## Hi I found small yellow pills on one side of them they have a 0 on the top of it and then a line in the middle and then 0.6 and I locked it and it tasted sweat kind of like nerve pills... I'm just wondering what they would be

Rapid weight gain while on allopurinol
18 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...

mavidol ketorolaco

Is this med. Good for gout ## Hello, Patricia! How are you? Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, so it may help with the pain and swelling of gout, but it will not treat the underlying issue of excess uric acid that causes it. Side effect may include nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach pain and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I am having uric acid pain. Can I take febuget 80 with ketorol dt

Proton pump inhibitors
Post a Reply
Can someone enlighten me, please? I take the following medicines: Eltroxin, Cardicor, Zartan, Amloc, Puresis, Allopurinol, Plenish K, Ultimag, Estro-pause, Adco-Dol (for migraines. Allergic to everything else, also those supposed to be preventative.) My concern is the Allopurinol. I have read somewhere that it may cause sudden death. Because of the Puresis I have no alternative, as nothing I do dietwise, do anything to bring down the uric acid count. Please advise me, as I am with my back to the wall. Any information will be greatly appreciated. Also information concerning the negatives of proton pump inhibitors. Thank you ever so much. Anita.

lactose free allopurinol

Does anyone know of a manufacturer producing lactose-free allopurinol? (Not Actavis, Accord, Aurobindo or Aspen). ## Mylan Lab has lactose-free allopurinol. But recently it raised the price by more than five fold.

Rabiplus D details
1 Reply RSS
I am experiencing gout on my feet and when I consulted the doctor he prescribed Rabiplus-D along with other medications. Does this medicine have any effect on my problem of gout? The other medications prescribed by the doctor are methvit-OD and Nucoxia. ## According to NIH reports, Nucoxia can be very harsh on your stomach, so in most cases, a medication such as Rabiplus-D is also prescribed to help prevent that stomach irritation. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and flatulence. Is there anything else I can help with?

Can Amox-Clav 875-125 cause a gout flare up?
1 Reply RSS
My doctor told me I had an ear infection and prescribed Amox-Clav 875-125 since I work in the UAE ( I think she thinks I may have brought it over). I developed sinus drainage, extreme sore throat, coughing, and sinus infection symptoms about three days after getting to the states. Since taking the medicine, I have developed pains in my entire left foot. I have gout, and this feels like an expanded case of gout. My throat pain is gone, but now my eyes are blood-shot and matty, and my foot hurts. ## Hello, Marc! How are you doing? Has there been any change? Gout is not something that the FDA lists as a typical side effect of this medication, they usually include nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. However, it is difficult to say how any given medication will...

capsule N020 white
3 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...
