Drink extra fluids (about ten to twelve 8 ounce glasses per day) while you are getting zyloprim so you will urinate more. This helps prevent gout and flush the crystals from your system.
Zyloprim inhibits the enzymatic oxidation of mercaptopurine and azathioprine to 6-thiouric acid.
Order zyloprim to take with or without food. Take zyloprim with food if it upsets your stomach.
Zyloprim can make your symptoms worse if you start taking it during an attack of gout. So, your doctor will not start it until two or three weeks after an attack of gout has settled.
If you keep getting attacks of gout, your doctor may suggest to order zyloprim.
