What is allopurinol? About Zyloprim allopurinol
What is allopurinol? Zyloprim Allopurinol is used to treat gout and certain types of kidney stones. 300mg allopurinol is also used to prevent increased uric acid levels in patients receiving cancer chemotherapy. Allopurinol side effect depends on a medical condition. In adults, Zyloprim dose ranges from 200 to 300 mg per day.
