Table of contents:

Uloric is a prescription medicine used for the chronic management of hyperuricemia (elevated levels of uric acid in the blood) in adult patients with gout who have an inadequate response to or are intolerant of other medications for gout. Uloric belongs to a class of drugs called Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitors. It works by reducing the amount of uric acid made by the body.

Febuxostat is used to treat hyperuricemia (elevated levels of uric acid) in adults with gout, to prevent gout attacks or flares, and to lower blood uric acid levels. It is typically used when other medications like allopurinol cannot be taken or have not worked well and can help prevent damage to joints and other complications associated with gout.

Uses and Dosage

Uloric (febuxostat) is available in tablet form and is usually taken once daily with or without food. The dosage and duration of treatment may vary depending on the patient's medical condition and response to the treatment. Talk to your doctor before starting Uloric, and follow their instructions carefully to ensure safe and effective use of the medication.

The recommended starting dosage of Uloric is 40 mg once daily. If a patient does not achieve a serum uric acid (sUA) level of less than 6 mg/dL after two weeks, the recommended ULORIC dosage is increased to 80 mg once daily.
