How it Works

Allopurinol is a medication used primarily to treat gout and certain types of kidney stones. It works by reducing the production of uric acid in the body. Allopurinol inhibits the enzyme xanthine oxidase, which is responsible for converting hypoxanthine and xanthine into uric acid. By decreasing the amount of uric acid produced, allopurinol helps prevent gout attacks and reduces the formation of uric acid crystals that can lead to kidney stones and joint damage.
