Buy Zyloprim brand or generic Allopurinol prescription drug from Canada
Why is Zyloprim prescribed?
Allopurinol (Zyloprim) is prescribed to treat gout, hyperuricemia (high uric acid levels in the blood) due to cancer medications, and kidney stones.
What does it do?
Gout is a medical condition caused by the accumulation of uric acid crystals in the joints. When uric acid is accumulated it can cause symptoms such as pain, kidney stones, and blockage of certain kidney structures. The use of drugs such as Allopurinol may be beneficial in these circumstances.
Allopurinol is classified as a xanthine oxidase inhibitor that works by decreasing the production of uric acid levels in the body. However, it is only used in the prevention of gout attacks.
How should I take it?
Zyloprim is available as a 100mg and 300mg tablet intended for oral administration after meals to prevent stomach upset. It should be swallowed as a whole and should not be crushed, chewed, broken in half or tampered in any way. Take it with a full glass of water at the same time as prescribed and increase your water intake to reduce your risk of developing kidney stones.
The full effects of Zyloprim may not be felt immediately and may take several months to manifest. Do not alter your dose or stop taking it without consulting your doctor.
This drug should always be taken according to your doctor’s instructions. Always consult your doctor or pharmacist for any concerns you may have in taking Zyloprim.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Zyloprim?

When taking Allopurinol for the first few times, gout attacks may occur more frequently, and it may take some time before these attacks lessen and subside. It is possible for your doctor to give you other medications to manage these gout attacks.
Taking allopurinol may cause drowsiness. Avoid alcohol intake and doing activities that require your full attention such as driving or operating machinery until you feel it is safe to do so. Inform your doctor if there is no improvement of these symptoms.
