Does Zurampic (lesinurad) cause side effects?
Zurampic (lesinurad) is a selective uric acid reabsorption inhibitor (SURI) that reduces uric acid levels in people who have too much uric acid in their blood (hyperuricemia) and have symptoms of gout.
Uric acid is formed from the breakdown of certain chemicals (purines) in the body. Hyperuricemia occurs when the body produces more uric acid than it can eliminate. The uric acid forms crystals in joints (gouty arthritis) and tissues, causing inflammation and pain.
Zurampic reduces uric acid levels by blocking the function of proteins in the kidney involved in reabsorbing uric acid from urine back into the bloodstream. Reducing reabsorption of uric acid reduces the levels of uric acid in the body. Zurampic is used in combination with another class of drugs called xanthine oxidase inhibitors
Common side effects of Zurampic include
Serious side effects of Zurampic include
Zurampic blood levels are decreased by drugs such as rifampin and carbamazepine, that increase its breakdown in the liver.
Zurampic may reduce the effect of hormonal contraceptives.
Women should use additional methods of contraception when taking Zurampic. There are no adequate trials of Zurampic use in pregnant women. Zurampic should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
What are the important side effects of Zurampic (lesinurad)?
Common side effects of lesinurad include:
Possible serious side effects of lesinurad include:

Clinical Trials Experience
Because clinical trials are conducted under widely varying conditions, adverse reaction rates observed in the clinical trials of a drug cannot be directly compared to rates in the clinical trials of another drug and may not reflect the rates observed in clinical practice.
Although other doses have been studied, the recommended dose of Zurampic is 200 mg once daily in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor.
In 3 randomized, placebo-controlled studies of Zurampic in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor (Studies 1 and 2 were with allopurinol and Study 3 was with febuxostat) for up to 12 months, a total of 511, 510, and 516 patients were treated with Zurampic 200 mg, Zurampic 400 mg, and placebo, respectively.
The mean duration of treatment with Zurampic was 11.2 months. The mean age of the population was 52 years (18-82), and 95% were males.
At baseline, 62% of the patient population showed mild or moderate renal impairment (eCLcr less than 90 mL/min) and 79% of patients had at least one co-morbid condition including
Zurampic causes an increase in renal uric acid excretion, which may lead to renal events including transient increases in serum creatinine, renal-related adverse reactions, and kidney stones. These renal events occurred more frequently in patients receiving Zurampic 400 mg, when used as monotherapy or in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor.
The number of patients with serum creatinine elevations in the 12-month placebo-controlled trials in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor are shown in Table 1. Most of these elevations on Zurampic 200 mg and Zurampic 400 mg resolved without treatment interruption (Table 1).
Table 1: Patients with Elevated Serum Creatinine Values in the Placebo-Controlled Clinical Studies with Zurampic in Combination with a Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitor (XOI)
|[n (%)]||Placebo +XOI (N=516)||Zurampic 200 mg + XOI (N=511)||Zurampic 400 mg + XOI (N=510)|
|Serum creatinine elevation 1.5 x to < 2.0 x baseline||12 (2.3%)||20 (3.9%)||51 (10.0%)|
|Resolution of serum creatinine elevations by end of study||9/12 (75.0%)||18/20 (90.0%)||42/51 (82.4%)|
|Serum creatinine elevation ≥ 2.0 x baseline||0||9 (1.8%)||34 (6.7%)|
|Resolution of serum creatinine elevations by end of study||N/A||8/9 (88.9%)||26/34 (76.5%)|
Renal-related adverse reactions, including blood creatinine increases and renal failure, and nephrolithiasis reported in patients receiving Zurampic 200 mg, Zurampic 400 mg and placebo in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor are shown in Table 2. The incidence of reports of “blood creatinine increased” was higher with Zurampic and was highest with Zurampic 400 mg.
Renal-related adverse reactions by baseline renal function category are shown in Table 3. Blood creatinine increased occurred more frequently in patients treated with Zurampic in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor across baseline renal function categories (Table 3).

|Renal failure1||5 (5.0%)||2 (2.0%)||4 (4.3%)|
|1 Renal failure includes the following adverse reactions: renal failure, renal impairment, renal failure chronic, renal failure acute, acute prerenal failure.|
Renal-related adverse reactions resulted in a similar discontinuation rate on Zurampic 200 mg in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor (1.2%) and a xanthine oxidase inhibitor alone (1%) and a higher rate on Zurampic 400 mg in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor (3.3%).
Serious renal-related adverse reactions were reported in patients on Zurampic 400 mg in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor (1%) and a xanthine oxidase inhibitor alone (0.4%) and in no patients on Zurampic 200 mg in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor during the 12-month controlled period of the studies. Serious renal-related adverse reactions were reported with Zurampic 200 mg and Zurampic 400 mg in the uncontrolled long-term extensions.
In a 6-month double-blind, placebo-controlled monotherapy study, renal failure (9.3%), blood creatinine increased (8.4%), and nephrolithiasis (0.9%) were reported in patients receiving Zurampic 400 mg alone and in no patients receiving placebo. Serum creatinine elevations 1.5-fold or greater occurred in 24.3 % of patients receiving Zurampic 400 mg and in no patients receiving placebo.
Cardiovascular events and deaths were adjudicated as Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events (cardiovascular death, non-fatal myocardial infarction, and non-fatal stroke) in the Phase 3 randomized controlled studies of Zurampic.
In the randomized controlled studies, the numbers of patients with adjudicated MACE events (incidences per 100 patient-years of exposure) were: 3 (0.71) for placebo, 4 (0.96) for Zurampic 200 mg, and 8 (1.94) for Zurampic 400 mg when used in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor.
Incidence rate ratios for Zurampic 200 mg and 400 mg compared with placebo were
- 1.36 (95% CI: 0.23, 9.25) and
- 2.71 (95% CI: 0.66, 16.00), respectively.
Other Adverse Reactions
Adverse reactions occurring in 2% or more of patients on Zurampic 200 mg in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor and at least 1% greater than that observed in patients on placebo with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor are summarized in Table 4.
Table 4: Adverse Reactions Occurring in ≥ 2% of Zurampic 200 mg-Treated Patients and at Least 1% Greater than Seen in Patients Receiving Placebo in Controlled Studies with Zurampic in Combination with a Xanthine Oxidase Inhibitor (XOI)

|Gastroesophageal reflux disease||0.8%||2.7%|
What drugs interact with Zurampic (lesinurad)?
CYP2C9 Inhibitors, CYP2C9 Poor Metabolizers, And CYP2C9 Inducers
- Lesinurad exposure is increased when Zurampic is co-administered with inhibitors of CYP2C9, and in CYP2C9 poor metabolizers.
- Zurampic should be used with caution in patients taking moderate inhibitors of CYP2C9 (eg, fluconazole, amiodarone), and in CYP2C9 poor metabolizers.
- Lesinurad exposure is decreased when Zurampic is co-administered with moderate inducers of CYP2C9 (eg, rifampin, carbamazepine), which may decrease the therapeutic effect of Zurampic.
- In interaction studies conducted in healthy subjects with Zurampic and CYP3A substrates, lesinurad reduced the plasma concentrations of sildenafil and amlodipine.
- Although there was not a clinically significant interaction with atorvastatin, HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors that are sensitive CYP3A substrates may be affected.
- The possibility of reduced efficacy of concomitant drugs that are CYP3A substrates should be considered and their efficacy (eg, blood pressure and cholesterol levels) should be monitored.
Epoxide Hydrolase Inhibitors
- In vitro studies suggest that lesinurad is not an inhibitor of epoxide hydrolase; however, inhibitors of epoxide hydrolase (ie, valproic acid) may interfere with metabolism of lesinurad.
- Zurampic should not be administered with inhibitors of epoxide hydrolase.
- Hormonal contraceptives, including oral, injectable, transdermal, and implantable forms, may not be reliable when Zurampic is co-administered.
- Females should practice additional methods of contraception and not rely on hormonal contraception alone when taking Zurampic.
- Aspirin at doses higher than 325 mg per day may decrease the efficacy of Zurampic in combination with allopurinol.
- Aspirin at doses of 325 mg or less per day (ie, for cardiovascular protection) does not decrease the efficacy of Zurampic and can be coadministered with Zurampic.
Zurampic (lesinurad) is a selective uric acid reabsorption inhibitor (SURI) that reduces uric acid levels in people who have too much uric acid in their blood (hyperuricemia) and have symptoms of gout. Common side effects of Zurampic include headache, influenza, and gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). There are no adequate trials of Zurampic use in pregnant women. It is unknown if Zurampic is excreted into breast milk.

Related Disease Conditions
Buildup of uric acid crystals in a joint causes gouty arthritis. Symptoms and signs include joint pain, swelling, heat, and redness, typically of a single joint. Gout may be treated with diet and lifestyle changes, as well as medication.
Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease that causes chronic inflammation of the joints, the tissue around the joints, as well as other organs in the body. Because it can affect multiple other organs of the body, rheumatoid arthritis is referred to as a systemic illness and is sometimes called rheumatoid disease. The 16 characteristic early RA signs and symptoms include the following. Anemia Both sides of the body affected (symmetric) Depression Fatigue Fever Joint deformity Joint pain Joint redness Joint stiffness Joint swelling Joint tenderness Joint warmth Limping Loss of joint function Loss of joint range of motion Many joints affected (polyarthritis)
16 Early Signs and Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Early RA symptoms and signs vary differently from person to person. The most common body parts that are initially affected by RA include the small joints of the hands, wrists, and feet, and the knees and hip joints. Joint inflammation causes stiffness. Warmth, redness, and pain may vary in degree.
Arthritis (Joint Inflammation)
Arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints. When joints are inflamed they can develop stiffness, warmth, swelling, redness and pain. There are over 100 types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis, lupus, gout, and pseudogout.
Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis caused by inflammation, breakdown, and eventual loss of cartilage in the joints. Also known as degenerative arthritis, osteoarthritis can be caused by aging, heredity, and injury from trauma or disease.

Quackery of Arthritis
Arthritis patients are sometimes vulnerable to quackery (the business of promoting unproven remedies). These "quick fix" treatments are promoted as cure-alls, but they really have no right to such claims. Consumers should be wary of products that have marketing claims like "will cure," "ancient remedy," "has no side effects," and "revolutionary new scientific breakthrough." Read about arthritis remedies and tests that have no scientific proof of benefits.
Psoriatic arthritis is a disease that causes skin and joint inflammation. Symptoms and signs include painful, stiff, and swollen joints, tendinitis, and organ inflammation. Treatment involves anti-inflammatory medications and exercise.
Septic arthritis, or infectious arthritis, is infection of one or more joints by bacteria, viruses, or fungi. Symptoms and signs of septic arthritis include fever, joint pain, chills, swelling, redness, warmth, and stiffness. Treatment involves antibiotics and the drainage of the infected joint.
Rheumatoid Arthritis vs. Fibromyalgia
Though rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and fibromyalgia have similar symptoms, RA is an autoimmune disease and fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome. RA symptoms include joint redness, swelling, and pain that lasts more than six weeks. Fibromyalgia symptoms include widespread pain, tingling feet or hands, depression, and bowel irritability. Home remedies for both include stress reduction, exercise, and getting enough sleep.
Fungal arthritis is inflammation of a joint by a fungus that has invaded the body and is growing in the normally sterile joint. Fungal arthritis symptoms and signs include pain, redness, loss of range of motion, and swelling. Fungal arthritis treatment includes antibiotics, adequate drainage of the joint, and sometimes surgery.
Reactive arthritis is a chronic, systemic rheumatic disease characterized by three conditions, including conjunctivitis, joint inflammation, and genital, urinary, or gastrointestinal system inflammation. Inflammation leads to pain, swelling, warmth, redness, and stiffness of the affected joints. Non-joint areas may experience irritation and pain. Treatment for reactive arthritis depends on which area of the body is affected. Joint inflammation is treated with anti-inflammatory medications.
Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA)
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) annually affects one child in every thousand. There are six types of JRA. Treatment of juvenile arthritis depends upon the type the child has and should focus on treating the symptoms that manifest.
How Serious Is Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder that typically affects the joints and other body parts, such as the skin, eyes, lungs, heart and blood vessels. RA is an autoimmune disorder, a condition where the body’s immune system attacks its own tissues. If not diagnosed early and appropriately treated, RA can lead to permanent deformities, disabilities and serious systemic complications.
Osteoarthritis vs. Rheumatoid Arthritis
Osteoarthritis (OA) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are chronic joint disorders. RA is also an autoimmune disease. OA and RA symptoms and signs include joint pain, warmth, and tenderness. Over-the-counter pain relievers treat both diseases. There are several prescription medications that treat RA.
Non-Radiographic Axial Spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA)
Non-radiographic spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) is an inflammatory arthritis that mainly affects the joints of the spine. Morning stiffness and back pain are the usual symptoms of nr-axSpA. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, exercise, and biologics are treatments for nr-axSpA.
Osteoarthritis vs. Osteoporosis Differences and Similarities
Arthritis is defined as painful inflammation and joint stiffness. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis and the most common cause of chronic joint pain, affecting over 25 million Americans. Osteoarthritis is a type of arthritis that involves the entire joint. Osteoporosis is not a type of arthritis. It is a disease that mainly is caused by a loss of bone tissue that is not limited to the joint areas. It is possible for one person to have both osteoarthritis and osteoporosis. The differences in the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis include; pain, stiffness, and joint swelling, joint deformity, crackle sounds when the joint is moving, and walking with a limp. Osteoporosis is called the "silent disease" because it can progress for years without signs and symptoms before it is diagnosed, severe back pain, bone fractures, height loss, and difficulty or inability to walk. The differences in the causes of osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are that osteoarthritis usually is caused by wear and tear on the joints. Osteoporosis usually is caused by one or more underlying problems, for example, calcium and vitamin D deficiencies. Treatment for osteoarthritis and osteoporosis are not the same. There is no cure for osteoarthritis or osteoporosis.
Rheumatoid Arthritis vs. Arthritis
Arthritis is a general term used to describe joint disease. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is a type of arthritis in which the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks the joints, causing chronic inflammation.
What Is the Main Cause of Rheumatoid Arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease characterized by pain and inflammation in joints, typically of the hands and feet. It is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system of the body attacks its own healthy cells, resulting in inflammation of the membrane lining the joints and damage to joint tissue.
What Foods Get Rid of Gout?
A gout diet may help decrease uric acid levels in the blood. A gout diet isn't a cure. But it may lower the risk of recurring gout attacks and slow the progression of joint damage.
Which Foods Make Arthritis Worse?
Certain foods can contribute to arthritis joint inflammation, like processed foods high in salt, alcohol, red meat and others. Foods that are good for the joints are beans, greens and other whole foods that have high fiber and nutrient content and low calories; these foods promote weight loss, which improves arthritis symptoms, and some may lower inflammation, generally.
Arthritis in Knee: 4 Stages of Osteoarthritis
Painful joint swelling is called arthritis. Osteoarthritis is due to wear and tear of the joints over many years. Arthritis maye develop in any joint, including the fingers, hips and knees. Usually, patients with arthritis feel pain in their joints even after moderate movements. There are four stages of osteoarthritis of the knee.
Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Affect Pregnancy?
Yes, rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects pregnancy. RA can lead to complications like preterm birth, raised blood pressure (preeclampsia), and low birth weight babies.
Causes of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disorder (the body’s immune system mistakenly attacks its own cells). Certain factors increase the risk of RA.
Breastfeeding With Rheumatoid Arthritis
You can breastfeed your baby even if you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, you must always consult your doctor before you start the process.
Safest Rheumatoid Arthritis Drugs During Pregnancy
None of the drugs used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is completely safe during pregnancy. You must discuss with your physician regarding the decision to use, modify, or stop any medications.
Can Rheumatoid Arthritis Be Caused by Stress?
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory joint condition and an autoimmune disease. At times, treatment can make rheumatoid arthritis symptoms (pain and swelling) disappear for a while. This symptom-free period is referred to as “remission.” A remission is followed by the reappearance of symptoms and this period is known as a flare-up. Research says that rheumatoid arthritis can be caused by stress.
What Is the Main Cause of Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a chronic degenerative disease of the joints affecting middle-aged and elderly people. It involves the breakdown of cartilage and associated inflammatory changes in the adjacent bone. It is a leading cause of chronic disability, affecting 30 million people in the United States alone.
Osteoarthritis and Treatment
Painful swelling of the joints due to wear and tear over many years is called osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis may develop in any joint that includes the fingers, hips, and knees. There are many treatment options available to curb the complications of arthritis.
Best Diet For Gout: What To Eat, What To Avoid
Gout is a type of arthritis causing pain and swelling in the joints. The disease happens when the body has high levels of a substance called uric acid or urate. Foods that may help keep gout in check are fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, eggs, oils, flaxseeds, potatoes, rice and nuts.
