    I am experiencing unpleasant side-effects with Colchicine 1.2mg/day and understand Allopurinol has the same side effects, perhaps worse (nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea).

    Does Febuxostat have the same side effects as Allopurinol?

    Also, Allopurinol patient info says 9-8oz. glasses of water daily is required. Is it the same for Febuxostat?

    Al O’Purinol

    fubuxostat (Uloric)

    We just learned that fubuxostat  was approved by the FDA on 11/24/2008. For anyone allergic to allopurinol, this could be a great thing. It probably won’t appear in the US pharmacies until spring 2009, but we are trying to get it from Paris or Rome as it has been available in Europe for some time. Please let me know if anyone found an on-line pharmacy that ships this drug to the US without a lot of hassle.



    fubuxostat = Febuxostat(Uloric)
    fubuxostat = Febuxostat(Uloric)

    Do you need fubuxostat to control your uric acid? Gout sufferers should search for Febuxostat. Or Uloric – its brand name in the States.
