TagFebuxostat

Febuxostat is the generic name for Uloric in America (see Adenuric elsewhere). This relatively new gout medication for lowering uric acid is a real alternative for gout patients who cannot tolerate allopurinol. Interestingly, it has changed the dosage debate, and doctors now [should] treat to target. Your gout treatment plan should clearly state your target uric acid level, then take sufficient Uloric to achieve that. See Uloric guidelines for more information.

Medical Disclaimer: The pupose of GoutPal is to provide jargon-free explanations of medical gout-related terms and procedures. Because gout sufferers need to know what questions to ask their doctor. Also, you need to understand what your doctor tells you. So this website explains gout science. But it is definitely NOT a substitute for medical advice.

Information on this website is provided by a fellow gout sufferer (Keith Taylor) with an accountant's precision for accurate data. But no medical qualifications. So you must seek professional medical advice about gout and any other health matters.
