Tablets – 100 mg
Alopurin is a medicine which inhibits the formation of uric acid (uricostatic).
Alopurin is indicated:
- in cases where blood uric acid values are 500 µmol/l (8.5 mg/100 ml) and above, provided it is dietary unmanageable, or in clinical complications with hyperuricemic conditions, especially manifested gout, renal damage caused by uric acid (urate nephropathy), treatment and prevention of uric acid stones, and to prevent the formation of calcium oxalate stones in concomitant hyperuricemia;
- in raised blood uric acid levels and increased excretion of uric acid in urine, e.g. in strong cell decay, radiation or chemotherapy (secondary hyperuricemia).
