In brief: Rash top problem
Allopurinol is very effective in controlling the level of uric acid and we use it to help treat gout by lowering the uric acid level and help to prevent gout attacks.
All medications have side effects. The Allopurinol can interact with certain drugs and can have side effects: we look at the skin, liver, kidney and other as sites to monitor.
