Uloric is a prescription medicine used to treat gout patients with serum uric acid. It is not meant for people with high uric acid levels but without a history of gout.

Uloric is a xanthine oxidase inhibitor that prevents the conversion of purines to uric acid and so, lowers the blood uric acid levels. Lower uric acid means reduced gout symptoms.

Patients are prescribed a single dose per day (40mg or 80mg as directed), which can be taken at any time, with or without food.
