USES: This medication is used to prevent gout and gouty arthritis. It will not treat a sudden/severe attack of gout and may make it worse. Gout occurs when your uric acid level gets too high, forming uric acid crystals in the joints that cause pain. Sulfinpyrazone belongs to a class of drugs known as uricosurics. It helps the kidneys to get rid of uric acid, thereby lowering high levels of uric acid and preventing crystals from forming. Lowering uric acid levels may also help your kidneys.
