Rapid weight gain while on allopurinol

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...

Years ago I was on Allupurinol, for excess uric acid., Then my ankles and feet starting to swell, and I went to the foot doctor, who put bandages around my legs. but it did not help. He ,then , send me to a Therapist, for massages and a few pedaling excersices..... but one of the therapist, told me, that if I was on Alluporinol, some people experience the same swelling. So, of my own, I stop Allupinol, and my swelling and soreness, disappear. Now I have had tophis, from the uric acid... and a rheumatogist put me again on Allopurinol, and it has been 3 months, and today, the same happens, my feet are sore, when I walk,and very swollen.... So I will stop again this medication, and will tell my rheumatologist, all about it. Dont know what he is going to use now.....? If you have heard simi...

Kidney failure from Allopurinol?

Can taking Allopurinol cause a diabetic to develop kidney problems? ## My father had a quadruple by-pass and kidney failure, should he continue taking allopurinol along with these medications: coumadin, lipitor, lisinopil, metrplolol and pholso? ## Allopurinol has been known to cause kidney failure as a side effect, along with nausea, dizziness, headache, kidney insufficiency, and confusion, according to FDA reports. Ref: Medline Plus Allopurinol However, diabetes and many other medications can also cause kidney problems, so there is really no way to say for sure what has caused kidney issues. What was the doctor's opinion? Carolyn, have those all been prescribed for him by his doctor? He should take what they have prescribed, and not make any changes, without their approval.

capsule N020 white

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...

Proton pump inhibitors

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. ## I’m 74 years old and had gout cause by excess Utica acid for 10 years until I read on the internet the “CHERRY REPORT “. I now take...

Allopurinol gluten free?

Is Allopurinol mfg by qualitest gluten free? ## Hi edb, From what I could gather, Allopurinol from Qualitest contains the following inactive ingredients: colloidal silicon dioxide, lactose monohydrate, magnesium stearate, microcrystalline cellulose and sodium starch glycolate. Unfortunately, "sodium starch glycolate" is heavily regarded as a questionable substance for those with a gluten intolerance; since it is derived from starch. So I personally wouldn't recommend taking it without your doctor's prior consensus. You can learn more about this drug on the page for Allopurinol Details I hope this helps! ## I got a new script of Allopurinol 300mg by Accord and need to know if it's gluten free? I have been taking another manufacturer's version for years and had no ...

Allopurinol causing constipation

I've been on Allopurinol 300mg once a day since early 90's, with no side effects at all. I have not had a kidney stone since I've been on the Medication. Two weeks ago I refilled my prescription and the medication that I usually get is from Ingenus. Much too my surprise I got Accord instead, from my Walgreens Pharmacy and after a few days I noticed that I was getting constipated. Ingenus has discontinued Allopurinol. I know that side effects from Allopurinol never mention constipation and I was wondring if the cause could be the fillers and binding agents. Have anybody run into constipation with Allopurinol? What manufacturer would be a better alternative to Accord for thiis drug. Any help would be greatly appreciated. ## Sorry to hear about your situation. According to NIH,...

allopurinol side effects mainly acid reflux

After 6 mos on 300 mg allopurinol, headaches still occur, sometimes migraines, acid reflux has gotten worse and worse, never was a problem before. 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. ## There is also a risk of it causing side effects, which the NIH lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, GERD, dry mouth, and changes in urination. That is just the nature of adding a chemical to the body to try to correct a problem. Have you started taking it, yet? If so, has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?

Allopurinol 100 mg tablets not available

My local dispensers tell me 100 mg tablets are no longer available from any manufacturer, even though the 300 mg tablets are still available.
