Why Do Doctors Prescribe Uloric?

Uloric is made by Takeda Pharmaceuticals and is designed to lower uric acid levels in the blood. Doctors prescribe Uloric to treat adult patients with gout, a disease that develops when uric acid builds up in the body.

Gout is a painful condition that causes redness and swelling in joints, and generally affects:

  • The big toe
  • Joints of the feet
  • Knees
  • Fingers
  • Elbows

Why is Uloric Dangerous?

The FDA first approved Uloric in 2009 as an alternative to the drug allopurinol. Although Uloric was approved, the FDA required Takeda to run a post-market clinical trial to evaluate the cardiovascular effects of the medication. Results from the study revealed that Uloric significantly increases the risk of heart-related death, as well as death from all other causes.

As a result of the findings from the clinical trial, the FDA is now requiring a “Boxed Warning” be included with the prescription information for Uloric. The “Boxed Warning” also known as a “Black Box Warning” is the most prominent warning for pharmaceuticals used by the FDA.

Symptoms to Be Aware of If You Take Uloric

If you have been prescribed Uloric, you should seek immediate medical attention if you notice any of the following symptoms:

  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness or weakness on one side of your body
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • Sudden severe headache
  • Trouble talking
