Febuxostat is the non-proprietary name for a xanthine oxidase inhibitor used to help reduce high uric acid levels and reduce the frequency and severity of gout flare-ups. This product is suitable for adults; do not buy Febuxostat for use in children without explicit doctor approval.

Note that Febuxostat is used to treat high uric acid only when gout is present and, rarely, in individuals who don't have gout/high uric acid levels but who are undergoing treatment which causes large cell die-offs, such as chemotherapy, which can lead to high uric acid levels. Patients should not buy Febuxostat to treat high uric acid when gout is not present. If treating high uric acid levels without gout, the medication Zyloprim is often preferred.

What to Expect from Treatment

The majority of patients who take Febuxostat ultimately have a decrease in gout flare-ups; attacks occur less often and, when they do occur, are less severe. Many patients find gout attacks are eliminated altogether. This happens after about 6 months of treatment at an effective dose.

The first six months of treatment can be difficult to get through, however. Gout flare-ups are often more frequent and more severe during the first six months; as uric acid levels are reduced, crystal deposits in tissues will start to be mobilized, causing attacks. While more frequent and severe attacks indicate the medication is working, that knowledge makes them no less painful.

While over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen work fine for some, others find they don't provide sufficient relief. Patients given a prescription to buy Febuxostat should have little trouble getting a prescription for a more potent painkiller as well, at least for the first six months.

Lifestyle Changes also Help

Patients who buy Febuxostat are often advised to make lifestyle changes as well. While advice will vary to some extent from patient to patient and country to country, in general suggested changes include:

  • Cut back on purine-rich foods, such as fatty meats
  • Increase intake of vitamin C
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Avoid unnecessary stress when possible
  • Stay hydrated
  • Get sufficient rest

There are many resources on the internet detailing gout-friendly foods, appropriate exercises, and so forth; patients interested in lifestyle changes are encouraged to make use of them.

Lifestyle changes, if made and maintained, can eventually eliminate the need for medications to manage uric acid levels. There are, unfortunately, exceptions; some individuals, despite rigorous attention to lifestyle, still develop high uric acid and will need to depend on medications indefinitely.

Dosage & Administration

Febuxostat comes in tables, which are taken just once per day. Treatment is similar in the majority of patients:

  • Start with 40 mg per day, taken once per day.
  • Results should be evaluated after two weeks. If needed, dosage may be increased to 80 mg per day, taken once per day.
  • Results should again be evaluated after two weeks. At this point, if uric acid levels are still too high, dosage may be increased to 120 mg per day. Alternatively, other medications may be tried instead.
  • Treatment typically lasts a minimum of six months and may continue for several years if needed.
  • Lifestyle changes are often critical in long-term management of uric acid levels.

Patients taking certain other medications or who have other major medical conditions may be started on lower doses.

Patients taking Febuxostat along with cancer treatments may have significantly different dosage and administration guidelines than above; doctor instructions should always be followed.

Adverse Effects

Side effects from Febuxostat are typically mild and often stop occurring after the first few weeks of treatment. Most common are:

  • Nausea
  • Mild dizziness
  • Mild skin rash
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache

The above are not cause for concern unless they become severe enough to be disruptive, in which case a doctor should be consulted.

Patients with other medical conditions are at greater risk of experiencing more serious side effects. Discuss risks and warning signs with a doctor before buying Febuxostat if there is a history of:

  • Liver problems
  • Heart disease
  • Cancer
  • Organ transplant

This product should not be used while taking medications containing azathioprine or mercaptopurine.
