allopurinol

Allopurinol is a drug which is used to treat certain types of kidney stones as well as gout. Allopurinol is also sometimes used to prevent an increase in uric acid levels with patients receiving chemotherapy for cancer treatment. Dying cancer cells release uric acid, which can cause an increase in uric acid levels in these patients. Increased uric acid levels can cause gout and kidney problems. Allopurinol works by reducing the amount of uric acid which is created by the body. Allopurinol is a generic drug. Some brand name versions include Zyloprim, Lopurin, and Aloprim.
