What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.
Uloric Helps Treat the Following Conditions:
Gout is a kind of arthritis caused by an excess of uric acid in the blood. When levels of uric acid are high, a portion of it forms hard crystals which settle in joints.
Symptoms can include swelling, redness and sharp pain in the joints, most often in the big toes. Pain symptoms can last a few days or weeks.
Being overweight, abusing alcohol, and eating too much meat and seafood are all risk factors associated with high levels of uric acid. Diuretic medicines can sometimes also increase this problem.

General Drug Information
What is Uloric and What Is It Used For?
Uloric is prescribed to patients suffering from gout. The medication works by reducing the amount of uric acid produced by the body. Internationally, Uloric is marketed as Adenuric.
Usage and Application
Patients are usually prescribed Uloric once daily. The medication should be taken orally with or without food. The dosage depends on the patient’s condition and their response to treatment. It is important to take Uloric regularly in order to experience its full benefit.
Patients may still experience gout attacks up to several months after starting therapy, as their body works to remove remaining uric acid. Uloric is not a pain reliever and should not be used as such in the event of an attack.
Patients who experience pain during a gout flare may need their doctor to prescribe additional medications such as colchicine, ibuprofen, naproxen, or indomethacin.
Considerations Before taking Uloric
Patients need to discuss the possibility of allergic reactions to Uloric. It is also vital to discuss the patient’s medical history, especially surgeries involving organ transplants or any history of heart, liver or kidney disease, cancer or stroke.
Patients preparing to undergo surgery or certain dental procedures should inform their doctor or dentist about all medicines, supplements and herbal products they are taking.
Women planning on becoming pregnant should discuss the risks and benefits of taking this drug with their doctor. It is not known whether Uloric passes into breast milk.
Delayed and Omitted Doses
Patients who miss a dose of Uloric should take it as soon as they remember. If this happens near the time for the next dose, patients should skip the missed dose and proceed as usual. Patients should not double up on the dose in order to catch up.
Other Medications and Uloric
Drug interactions may change the way Uloric works and can increase the risk of side effects. Before starting treatment, patients need to discuss the full list of medications and supplements they are taking with their doctor.
Patients should not change their dose or stop taking this medication unless their physician advises them to do so.
Some substances – like azathioprine (Imuran) and mercaptopurine (Purinethol)– may interact negatively with Uloric.
Some patients may feel nauseous at the beginning of therapy. Patients should alert their doctor if this problem persists or gets worse. Most people taking Uloric do not experience serious side effects. Yet, in rare cases, it is possible to develop serious and possibly fatal liver disease.
Uloric may also increase the number of liver enzymes produced by the body, and it is important that this is closely monitored. Patients should have regular testing and inform their doctor in the event of symptoms such as continuous nausea, abdominal pain, dark urine, and yellowing eyes or skin.
Patients should also alert their doctor if their urine turns pink or bloody, or if they experience pain while urinating. A small number of patients undergoing treatment with Uloric experienced heart-related problems or stroke. It is not known whether there is a link between the medication and these problems.
Patients should seek immediate medical help if they feel weakness on one side of the body, sudden vision changes or confusion – all symptoms of stroke. Patients should also seek immediate medical attention if they experience chest or left arm pain, unusual sweating, swelling of the ankles or feet, unusual tiredness and trouble breathing – signs of heart failure.
Uloric may cause an allergic rash in some patients. Serious allergic reactions to Uloric are rare, yet patients should be aware of allergy symptoms – rash, itching and swelling, severe dizziness and trouble breathing.
How to Store Uloric
Uloric should be stored at room temperature away from light or moisture. Do not store in the bathroom. Keep away from children and pets.
Unwanted medication should be disposed of properly and should not be poured into drains or flushed down the toilet.
Patients should consult a pharmacist or their local waste disposal company to find out more about safe disposal methods.
