When should a patient be started on urate lowering therapy?
- After first gout attack
- Especially if having > or = to 2 attacks/year
What is the goal of urate lowering therapy?
< 6 mg/dL uric acid (5 is ideal in a persistent case)
How do xanthine oxidase inhibitors lower uric acid?
- Inhibition of uric acid synthesis
- Inhibits hypoxanthine from forming xanthine
- Inhibits xanthine form forming uric acid
What are the xanthine oxidase inhibitors?
Allopurinol and Febuxostat
Can you give xanthine oxidase inhibitors to people with hepatic or renal dysfunction?
Yes, no dose adjustments needed (because it wasn’t evaluated)
What are the AE for xanthine oxidase inhibitors?
- Increased frequency nd duration of attacks
- Severe rash
Can you use Xanthine oxidase inhibitors for acute gout?
No, may worsen the situation
