Uses
DP-Allopurinol (Allopurinol) is prescribed by doctors to treat a variety of conditions, including kidney stones, gout and excess uric acid levels in the body. High levels of uric acid can sometimes occur as a result of treatment with anti-cancer medication. Kidney stones and gout attacks are also caused by uric acid. This medication is a type of xanthine oxidase inhibitor, and it helps to lessen the body`s production of uric acid. Patients should note that this drug is used to prevent the occurrence of a gout attack, and not to treat one that has already occurred.

Dosage and Administration
DP-Allopurinol (Allopurinol) comes as tablets, which must be taken in accordance with the prescribing doctor`s instructions. Adult patients are usually directed to take it 1 to 2 times per day. Doctors recommend taking the medicine after a meal. This medication can take several months or longer to fully work, and there is a slight possibility of it increasing the amount of gout attacks when treatment is first started. However, eventually it will help to prevent these attacks. If your doctor has prescribed this medicine for you, it is necessary to continue taking it unless told otherwise.
