Febuxostat Drug Information

Some medications for gout have been around for a long time. Febuxostat (Uloric®) is the first new drug for gout to be approved in 40 years. It works by lowering uric acid levels; however, the medicine is better at preventing gout attacks than it is at treating them. As a result, you may take febuxostat in combination with other medications, at least temporarily.
 
Prior to beginning treatment, review the safety information on febuxostat with your healthcare provider. This includes drug combinations to avoid, possible side effects to watch for, and conditions in your medical history where more careful monitoring may be required during treatment. Understanding this can help ensure a safe, effective treatment process with this medicine.
