What is Adenuric?
Adenuric (active substance: febuxostat) decreases uric acid levels in the blood. As a result, no or less urate crystals are formed in and around the joints. Gout symptoms are thus controlled and prevented. You can order Adenuric online through the pharmacies working together with Dokteronline.com.
What is this medicine used for?
Doctors prescribe Adenuric as a treatment against gout. Gout is an inflammation in the joints. The affected joint (usually the big toe) is suddenly red, hot, swollen and painful.
Gout is caused by uric acid, a substance in the blood that normally is resolved. If there is too much uric acid, this can cause urate crystals in the joints. Adenuric prevents the formation of too much uric acid. This will prevent gout attacks.
How to use Adenuric?
Take this medication daily at a fixed time. You can take the tablet with or without food. Swallow the tablet whole with some liquid. It may take some time before the effect of Adenuric is noticeable. Keep using the medication until you notice effect. Adenuric must often be taken on the long-term. This prevents the return of gout attacks.

Pregnancy / driving / alcohol
Do not use Adenuric if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Talk with a doctor about an alternative drug.
Adenuric can sometimes cause side effects such as dizziness or drowsiness. Do not participate in traffic if you suffer from such symptoms.
Alcoholic beverages can increase the production of uric acid. Moreover, alcohol reduces the excretion of uric acid, which may exacerbate the condition. Stop or moderate your intake of liquor to prevent this.
