(Used to treat symptoms of gout)
Compiled by Pam Duff, RN, CSNC 2009
The following are common examples.
- allopurinol [Zyloprim]
- probenecid [Benemid, Benuryl, and others]
- sulfinpyrazone [Anturane]
- Deplete: A, beta carotene, B3, B12, D, E, K, folic acid, calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium
- These drugs tend to remain in the body longer in vegetarians or those on low-protein diets. This can triple the time it takes for the drug to be removed from the body.
