Health risks linked to Uloric use

After reviewing the results from a safety clinical trial, The FDA has concluded there is an increased risk of death and heart problems when taking Uloric (febuxostat) to treat gout compared to another competitor, allopurinol. Uloric was FDA-approved in 2009 to lower levels of uric acid buildup in the blood, which can lead to gout. As of 2019, Uloric has a Boxed Warning, the most significant warning for complications administered by the FDA.

Patients taking Uloric for gout management should be aware of the medication’s associated risks, which extend beyond its intended therapeutic effects:

  • An increased risk of severe cardiovascular events, including heart attack and heart failure.
  • A heightened risk of stroke, with some studies suggesting a correlation between Uric use and increased incidence of stroke in patients.
  • Other potential adverse effects emphasize the need for careful monitoring and consultation with healthcare providers.
