About Zyloric 100 mg
Zyloric 100 mg belongs to the ‘enzyme inhibitor’ class of drugs, which are generally used to lower blood uric acid levels. It’s used to treat Gout (inflammation caused by an excess in uric acid), kidney stones, and bladder stones. Gout is an inflammatory (allergic) reaction to uric acid crystals that develop and build inside joints, particularly the big toe, as a result of elevated uric acid levels in the blood, causing excruciating joint pain.
Allopurinol, included in Zyloric 100 mg, acts by blocking the enzyme xanthine oxidase, which is responsible for uric acid production. It prevents the development of uric acid inside the body without interfering with the body’s and cells’ vital mechanisms.
Take 100 mg of Zyloric as directed by your doctor. Depending on your medical condition, you should take Zyloric 100 mg for as long as your doctor has recommended it. Upset stomach, diarrhoea, skin rash, and tiredness are the most frequent adverse effects of Zyloric 100 mg.

Advice on Diet and Lifestyle
Purines may be found in a variety of foods, including alcohol, fish, pork, and bacon. Gout sufferers should limit or avoid them entirely.
Uric acid levels can be reduced by losing weight.
Drinking enough of water is also useful. However, because alcohol and cigarettes raise uric acid levels, it is suggested that they be used in moderation.
Maintain a healthy diet that includes plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy products.
If your doctor tells you differently, drink at least 8 glasses of water or other fluids every day while taking Allopurinol. If you have renal disease, get medical advice before consuming any fluids.
If you have a sugar intolerance, tell your doctor before taking Allopurinol.
Before and during your treatment with Allopurinol, your doctor will keep a close eye on your kidney function.
Because Allopurinol can induce liver enzyme changes, a liver function test should be done on a regular basis to evaluate liver enzymes.

Glossary of Diseases and Conditions
Gout is an inflammatory (allergic response) reaction to uric acid crystals that develop and build inside the feet, knuckles, and surrounding bone joints as a result of elevated uric acid levels in the blood, causing excruciating joint pain. The pain may be considerable, but medicine helps to alleviate it. Repeated gout attacks may necessitate long-term therapy to avoid bone and cartilage damage as well as renal weakness. Chronic gout sufferers may notice little hard lumps growing in the sensitive flesh of their wrists, elbows, ankles, or earlobes. These deposits, known as tophi, are uric acid crystal concentrations that can cause discomfort and stiffness over time.
Kidney stones are a disease that occurs when hard deposits form in the kidney, resulting in stones. Calcium oxalate, uric acid, struvite, and cystine are the major components of kidney stones. It is caused by a rise in uric acid levels in the body. Renal calculi/nephrolithiasis/urolithiasis develops as a result of uric acid crystals forming in the kidney.
Allopurinol includes allopurinol, an enzyme inhibitor that prevents the generation of uric acid by inhibiting the enzyme xanthine oxidase. It prevents the development of uric acid inside the body without interfering with the body’s and cells’ vital mechanisms.
If you use Allopurinol and it causes you to vomit, your contraceptive pill will be ineffective, which might result in an unplanned pregnancy. If you are a woman of reproductive age, tell your doctor before taking Allopurinol and use a contraception such as condoms instead.
When you first start taking Allopurinol, it may increase the number of gout attacks you have. If you get an acute (sudden) episode of gout, do not stop taking Allopurinol since it may make the condition worse. It is advised that Allopurinol be used with an anti-inflammatory drug (colchicine) and that the dose of Allopurinol be gradually increased.
When giving Allopurinol to senior people (over 65 years old), the dose is usually reduced based on the patient’s health. Also, if you tell your doctor about any underlying diseases you have that might effect Allopurinol, the dose will be changed accordingly.
Some people may experience sleepiness when using allopurinol. It can also make you dizzy or cause you to lose your balance. To minimize any undesirable side effects, it is best to avoid driving or using machinery.
Allopurinol is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It acts by preventing the synthesis of uric acid by blocking the enzyme xanthine oxidase. It prevents the development of uric acid inside the body without interfering with the body’s and cells’ vital mechanisms.
It may take several weeks for your uric acid levels to drop enough for you to feel better or notice a substantial reduction in gout bouts.
