What Is Aloric and How Does It Work?

Aloric is a prescription medication used to treat gout and certain types of kidney stones. It is also used to prevent increased uric acid levels in patients receiving chemotherapy. These patients can have increased uric acid levels due to the release of uric acid from the dying cancer cells. Aloric works by reducing the amount of uric acid made by the body. Increased uric acid levels can cause gout and kidney problems.

Rated Aloric for Gout Report

Prescribed 100mg a day for gout pain and urate level fell but still suffered gout pains for about 5 months. When the dose was increased to 200mg a day I suffered from rashes, itches and very irritated eyelids. Have now gone 10 weeks without attack while taking 100mg a day. Keeping my fingers crossed. There is an alternative drug called "febuxostat".

Hepatotoxicity

Chronic therapy with Aloric is associated with transient and minor liver test abnormalities in 2% to 6% of patients, which resolve spontaneously or with drug discontinuation. More importantly, Aloric has been linked to acute liver injury that is typically associated with immunoallergic manifestations such as fever, rash, eosinophilia, lymphadenopathy, lymphocytosis, arthralgias and facial edema (drug-rash, eosinophilia and systemic symptoms — DRESS syndrome) (Case 1). The typical latency to onset is 2 to 6 weeks and the pattern of liver enzyme elevations tends to be hepatocellular or mixed, but can be cholestatic. Autoantibodies are not common. Aloric hepatotoxicity has a high fatality rate, either from acute liver failure or complications of other allergic manifestations such as toxic epidermal necrolysis, vasculitis, pancreatitis and renal dysfunction. African-American race and preexisting renal disease appear to be risk factors for hypersensitivity to Aloric.

Likelihood score: A (well established cause of clinically apparent liver injury).

Liver biopsy in Aloric hepatotoxicity typically shows an acute cholestatic or mixed hepatitis. Bile duct injury may be prominent early and loss of bile ducts later during the course. Histology can also show granulomas including "ring" granulomas that are typically associated with visceral infections such as Q fever or Kala-azar. Granulomas may be found in other organs as well and represent a typical histological correlate to the immunoallergic response to a medication. Two examples of Aloric hepatotoxicity are shown: one with a cholestatic hepatitis and another with acute granulomatous changes.

Introduction

What is Aloric and how is it used?

Aloric (al-oh-pure-ri-nol) is mainly used for the long-term treatment and prevention of gout. Taken regularly, it can stop attacks of gout and help prevent damage to your joints.

It can also be used for treating kidney stones.

The body naturally produces a substance called urate. This normally dissolves in your blood until it’s passed out of the body in your urine. When too much urate is produced, or if your body can’t get rid of it properly, crystals can form in and around your joints. This causes pain and inflammation.

Aloric blocks an enzyme that is involved in producing urate. This helps the crystals to dissolve and stops attacks of gout.

Aloric can lower the urate levels in your blood over the space of a few weeks. This will stop new crystals forming.

It can take longer to dissolve crystals that are already there, and you may have more attacks of gout during this time. This is more likely to happen if your urate levels are very high or you’ve had gout for a long time. If this happens to you, it doesn’t mean that your Aloric isn’t working.

Attacks of gout usually stop within a year, as long as your urate level has gone down enough.

Your doctor will usually be cautious about prescribing Aloric if you have kidney, thyroid or liver problems.

You will usually be offered Aloric for gout if blood tests show that your urate level is high and one or more of the following applies:

  • You keep having attacks of gout.
  • Your joints or kidneys have been damaged by attacks of gout.
  • Your skin has been affected by deposits of urate crystals.

Aloric side effects

Stop using this medicine and call your doctor at once if you have:

the first sign of any skin rash, no matter how mild;

worsening gout symptoms; or

liver problems - loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach pain (upper right side), itching, dark urine, clay-colored stools, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes).

Common Aloric side effects may include:

changes in your sense of taste.

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.

Allergy warning

Aloric can cause a severe allergic reaction. Symptoms can include:

  • itchy hives (raised bumps on your skin)
  • red or purple-colored spots on your skin
  • scaly skin
  • fever
  • chills
  • trouble breathing
  • swelling of your face or throat

If you have an allergic reaction, call your doctor or local poison control center right away. If your symptoms are severe, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. Don’t take this drug again if you’ve ever had an allergic reaction to it. Taking it again could be fatal (cause death).

Rated Aloric for Gout Report

i am holidaying in cyprus from australia-this is my 3rd attack of gout in about 3 yrs.i did not bring my sachets of "URALS" with me as i assumed i could obtain them here. the urals stops the gout and clear´s it up in about 3 days. i normally take a small sachet once or maybe twice a week but have been a month of "partying" without. the Aloric (300MG)has started working over the last 4 days and the pain is almost gone and swelling in toe joint nearly gone but still present. it would seem that the urals are a cure/preventitive and the Aloric is just preventitive.

Background

Aloric (al' oh pure' i nol) is an analog of hypoxanthine and a potent inhibitor of the enzyme xanthine oxidase that is responsible for converting hypoxanthine to xanthine and xanthine to uric acid in the breakdown pathway of purines. Aloric lowers serum and tissue uric acid levels and has potent activity against gout, largely in preventing rather than treating acute attacks of gout. Aloric was approved for use in the United States in 1963 and is still widely used. Current indications include therapy and prevention of gout, uric acid nephropathy, and the hyperuricemia caused by malignancy and anticancer therapy. It is not recommended for treatment of asymptomatic hyperuricemia. Aloric is available in multiple generic forms and under the brand name of Zyloprim or Aloprim in tablets of 100 and 300 mg. Intravenous formulations are also available. The recommended initial dose for therapy of gout is 100 mg daily, with increases of 100 mg in daily dose weekly until uric acid levels fall to 6 mg/dL or below, but not to exceed 800 mg daily. The average daily dose in therapy of gout is 300 mg. Common side effects include skin rash and hypersensitivity reactions.

Rated Aloric for Gout Report

I was prescribed 300 mg for high acid in urine, within 2 weeks I broke out with severe red rash and blisters, after reviewing the lab report, I should have been 100 mg. It has been 1 month since I stopped taking that medication and the blistering has stopped and the rash is slowly starting to go away. I am switching to taking 1/2 tsp of baking soda per day with more water. I have never had a gout attack and feel like I was misdiagnosed.
