Allopurinol Spelling

At the beginning of the facts list I explained how search is important to find facts about your questions and concerns. So it is vital that you spell allopurinol correctly. Also, avoid brand names in favor of the correct drug name. Otherwise, your search results may be incomplete.

To help you use the correct spelling for allopurinol, here are common misspellings and brand names.

  • Misspellings: alipurinal; allipurinal; allopurinal; allunopril; allupirol; aloperinal; alu purinol; alupronol; alupropinol; alupurin; alupurionol; appurinol; appurinol; purinal.
  • Brand names: APO-Allopurinol; Puricos; Purinol; Zyloprim; Zyloric.
