Zyloprim, with the generic name of Allopurinol, works by repressing the production of uric acid in the body.
Zyloprim is mostly prescribed to patients suffering from or prone to:
- Kidney stones caused by high levels of uric acid;
- Increased levels of uric acid caused by cancer treatments;
Have a talk with your physician before deciding to take Zyloprim especially if you have kidney or liver disease. You may be given a lower dosage or may need to undergo specific monitoring during the treatment period.
Zyloprim belongs to a class of drugs called FDA Pregnancy Category C. This entails that its effects to an unborn fetus is not certain. It is therefore suggested to see your doctor if you are pregnant before taking Zyloprim.
Nursing mothers are also advised to consult their doctor prior to taking Zyloprim as this passes into breast milk and may be unsafe for the breastfeeding baby.
Zyloprim must be taken exactly as directed by your doctor. If there is any instruction in the label that appears unclear to you, ask your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
Each dose is taken with a full glass of water on a full stomach. To lessen the chance of kidney stone formations, it is recommended to drink 8 to 10 full glasses (8-ounce glasses) of fluid a day.
Unless directed by your doctor, Zyloprim must not be double dosed. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember as long as it is not almost time for the next scheduled dose. Otherwise, forego missed dose and proceed with the next one.
If symptoms of over dosage are suspected, consult your doctor for the proper medical action.
Stop usage of Zyloprim and seek medical attention if you experience any of the following adverse conditions:
- Allergic reactions such as difficulty in breathing, closing of the throat, swelling of the lips, tongue, face, or hives;
- Blood in the urine or painful urination;
- Eye irritation;
- Fever, chills, or joint aches;
- Severe nausea or vomiting;

- Headache, dizziness or drowsiness;
- Upset stomach or diarrhea;
In any of the cases mentioned above, continue use of Zyloprim and inform your doctor. For other side effects not listed that are particularly causing discomfort or pain, tell your doctor right away.

Diuretics may increase the amount of Zyloprim in the blood.
