Taking ULORIC

Stand up to gout. Help lower your uric acid level with once-daily ULORIC

The goal with ULORIC

Keeping your uric acid level low, less than 6 mg/dL, is the goal for long-term management of gout.

What to expect when taking ULORIC

Your gout may flare up when you start taking ULORIC. This may be due to crystals beginning to dissolve in your joints as your uric acid level goes down. If you have a flare while taking ULORIC, do not stop taking your medicine. Your healthcare professional may tell you to take other medicines to help prevent or manage flares during initial treatment.

  • The most common side effects of ULORIC are liver problems, nausea, gout flares, joint pain, and rash
  • Tell your healthcare professional if you develop a rash or have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away
  • Your healthcare professional may do blood tests to check your liver function while you are taking ULORIC

How to take ULORIC

Take ULORIC just as your doctor instructs you. ULORIC is a once-daily pill that you can take either with or without food or antacids. It is available in both 40-mg and 80-mg doses—your doctor will decide which dose is right for you.

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.

Be sure to tell your healthcare professional about any medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements you're taking. There are certain types of medications that shouldn't be taken with ULORIC. These include Azathioprine and Mercaptopurine.

Tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or planning to become pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to breastfeed.
