Lesinurad brand name Lerar, Zurampic is a urate transporter inhibitor for treating high blood uric acid levels associated with gout. It is only recommended together with either allopurinol or febuxostat when these medications are not sufficient.
Lesinurad is used in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor, such as allopurinol or febuxostat, for treating hyperuricemia (high levels of uric acid in the blood serum) associated with gout. It is approved only for patients who have not achieved target uric acid levels with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor alone.
Why is this medication prescribed?
Lesinurad is used in combination with a xanthine oxidase inhibitor to treat hyperuricemia (high levels of uric acid) in people with gout (sudden attacks of redness, swelling, pain, and heat in one or more joints) whose disease is not controlled with their current medication. Lesinurad is in a class of medications called selective uric acid reabsorption inhibitors. It works by helping the kidneys to remove uric acid from the body.
How should this medicine be used?
Lesinurad comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken once daily in the morning with food and water. Take lesinurad at around the same time every day and at the same time that you take a xanthine oxidase inhibitor such as allopurinol (Lopurin, Zyloprim) or febuxostat (Uloric). Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take lesinurad exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.
Lesinurad controls hyperuricemia in people with gout but does not cure it. Your gout may flare up (intense painful, swelling joint) when you first start taking lesinurad, but do not stop taking it. Your doctor will give you other medications to help prevent gout flares. Continue to take lesinurad even if you feel well or have a gout attack. Do not stop taking lesinurad without talking to your doctor.
