Do not take ULORIC (febuxostat) if you are taking azathioprine or mercaptopurine.

Your gout may flare up when you start taking ULORIC; do not stop taking your ULORIC even if you have a flare. Your healthcare provider may give you other medicines to help prevent your gout flares.

A small number of heart attacks, strokes, and heart-related deaths were seen in clinical studies. It is not certain that ULORIC caused these events.

Tell your healthcare professional about liver or kidney problems or a history of heart disease or stroke.

Your healthcare professional may do blood tests to check your liver function while you are taking ULORIC.

Rarely, serious skin reactions can occur with ULORIC which may include rash, fever, swollen glands and other internal organ involvement such as liver, kidney, lung and heart. Tell your doctor immediately if you experience any of these signs.

The most common side effects of ULORIC are liver problems, nausea, gout flares, joint pain, and rash. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you, or that does not go away.
