Uloric Injury Lawyer

ULORIC is a prescription medicine used to lower blood uric acid levels in adult patients with gout.

The gout drug febuxostat (Uloric) poses a significantly higher risk of all-cause and heart-related death than does the popular alternative drug allopurinol, the Food and Drug Administration declared on Feb. 21. The agency is now mandating a black-box warning.

“Health care professionals should reserve Uloric for use only in patients who have failed or do not tolerate allopurinol,” the FDA announced. “Counsel patients about the cardiovascular risk with Uloric,” the agency suggested, and advise them to seek medical attention at once if they have cardiac symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath, rapid or irregular heartbeat, or dizziness.

“In patients treated with Uloric, 15 deaths from heart-related causes were observed for every 1,000 patients treated for a year compared to 11 deaths from heart-related causes per 1,000 patients treated with allopurinol for a year,” the FDA said. “In addition, there were 26 deaths from any cause per 1,000 patients treated for a year with Uloric compared to 22 deaths per 1,000 patients treated for a year with allopurinol.”

If you or a loved one have taken Uloric and have had heart related death call our office immediately, we can help.
