What ADENURIC and what it is used?
ADENURIC tablekti febuxostat contain the active ingredient and are used to treat gout, which is associated with an excess of a chemical called uric acid (urate) in the body. For some people, the amount of uric acid builds up in the blood and may become too large to remain soluble. When this happens, can form uric acid crystals in and around joints and kidneys. These crystals can cause sudden, severe pain, redness, warmth and swelling of the joints (known as a flare). If left untreated, in or around the joints can form larger deposits called tophi. These tophi can cause damage to bones and joints.
ADENURIC works by reducing uric acid levels. Maintaining low levels of uric acid by taking ADENURIC once a day, every day, stopping the formation of crystals and over time reduces symptoms. Keeping low enough uric acid levels for a sufficiently long period of time can also reduce the size of the tophus.
ADENURIC is for adults.
