What is Uloric?

Uloric is a prescription medicine called a xanthine oxidase inhibitor that reduces the production of uric acid in your body. Uric acid buildup can lead to gout or kidney stones.

Uloric is used to treat high blood concentrations of uric acid in patients with gout.

Uloric may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.Advertisement
