What To Know About Gout Medications?

We’ve all been at the mercy prescription medications for symptom relief. Prescription medications can be used to address this need. But ignoring the root cause and real problem will only lead to a backlash on your body, your health, and your overall health. Gout is a sign of body dysfunction, acidity, or toxicity that should not be ignored or ignored. There are many options and lifestyle changes that can help you recover and prevent gout. There are safe, effective, and natural ways to help your body get back to its normal state.

Let’s understand it

Allopurinol: This drug blocks the enzyme xanthineoxidase which is responsible for the conversion purines into uric acids. This lowers blood serum levels and is used to prevent chronic hyperuricaemia, stones, and gout. It is not a treatment for acute attacks and can even worsen an attack if it is used during an attack. Although this treatment sounds great in theory, one must remember that it can stop a very natural and essential production like uric acid. Uric acid is an important antioxidant and protects your DNA. Therefore, stopping its production seems counterproductive. It is important to monitor your liver, kidneys, blood, and blood while you are using uric acid.

Side Effects

Side effects include: peripheral neuritis; alopecia; swelling; pain in urination and hypertension; taste disturbances; nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, drowsiness, vertigo, and abdominal pain. Side effects that could be serious include: Anemia, bleeding, fatigue, or bruising, signs of hepatitis, yellowish skin or eyes (signs you have liver damage), severe skin reactions (rashes skin ulcers, hives intense itching), chest tightness, and weakness.

Colchicine is an alternative to NSAIDS that treats inflammation due to an attack. It can also stop cell division, which is another natural and necessary action in the body. Children and pregnant women should avoid it due to the potential dangers. High doses of this drug can cause serious side effects, toxicity, and even death. Colchicine can cause stomach problems in as many as 80% of those who take it in high doses. Colchicine can cause bone marrow problems, muscle inflammation and severe anemia. This can increase the risk for infection. People with reduced kidney function should avoid colchicine or adjust their dose.


Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like Indomethacin can be used to reduce inflammation, pain, fever, and other symptoms that may be caused by a gouty condition. These types of reactions are directly related to the body’s natural defense mechanism against infection. This is how you can tell if your body is doing what it should. The body can suffer long-term consequences if it suppresses these natural and necessary body reactions. Side effects include nausea, vomiting and dizziness. They can also cause fluid retention, which can lead to edema.

Side effects that can be fatal include kidney failure, liver disease, ulcers, and prolonged bleeding following injury or surgery. Although NSAIDs can cause significant toxicities, they are generally tolerated if used for a short time.


This drug alters how the immune system works. It actually takes over the natural function the adrenal gland to stop the body’s natural production of steroids. It has been shown to reduce the inflammation and redness that is associated with gout attacks. However, it can also cause serious side effects such as gouty eyes and other health problems. Prednisone can suppress the immune system, which can lead to side effects such as headaches, dizziness and extreme mood swings.
