ANTURANE (SULFINPYRAZONE)

Anturane Description

Gouty arthritis, referred to simply as gout, is an uncontrolled metabolic disorder that can occur from high levels of uric acid in your blood that can eventually cause the formation of crystals that accumulate around a joint. Some people are able to reduce uric acid levels naturally with a change in diet, weight loss, and consuming less alcohol. Although this can help decrease the number of gout attacks and their severity, you may still need to take Anturane or generic Sulfinpyrazone to maintain the increased excretion of uric acid. The treatment goal is to stop severe flare-ups and prevent future gout attacks and the formation of tophi and kidney stones. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

How Does Anturane Work?

When taken as directed, Anturane inhibits the reabsorption of uric acid which makes it possible to excrete excess uric acid in your urine and lowers urate concentrations in your blood. The action of Anturane also helps in dissolving tophi, the hard deposits of uric acid crystals that can form in other areas of your body, including your fingers, toes, and earlobes.

Anturane is not a cure for gout, but an effective drug that can stop or reduce your flare-ups. Taking Anturane will not stop a gout attack in progress. It can take several months before you benefit from the full effects of Anturane, so be patient and remember to drink at least 10-12 glasses of water a day to avoid having kidney stones.

Conditions Treated by Anturane

More men between the ages of 30 and 50 years old are affected by gout because they tend to have higher uric acid levels than women. This can change with the onset of menopause as women are more likely to develop gout after the age of 50. Risk factors for gout include obesity, hypertension, and moderate to heavy alcohol consumption. Sometimes it’s not the condition you may have but the medication you take to control it that can increase the uric acid in your blood. Without a proper diagnosis of gout, you could start to form tophi under your skin, around joints, and other areas of soft tissue.

Before Anturane is Prescribed

Your doctor can recommend blood tests, a urine test, joint fluid test, ultrasound, or x-rays to confirm a diagnosis of gout before prescribing Anturane. Discuss other medical conditions or allergies you have and list any OTC or Rx drugs you take, including herbal, dietary, or vitamin supplements so your doctor can determine if Anturane is safe for you to take.

Precautions and Proper Use of Anturane

You should not drive or perform any task that may be considered risky until you know how your body will react to Anturane. Do not drink alcohol while taking Anturane as it can increase certain side effects. Do not start or stop taking any current medications or change any dosages without first talking to your doctor. Take Anturane with food or drink to avoid possible upset stomach.
