About FUBOX 40MG TABLET

FUBOX 40MG TABLET belongs to a class of anti-gout medications, also known as xanthine oxidase inhibitors, widely used to prevent severe gout attacks or flares. Gout is a chronic condition that occurs due to the deposition of uric acid crystals in the joints. It is characterized by intense pain and swelling at the affected joints. FUBOX 40MG TABLET prevents the sudden attacks of pain caused by severe gout and decreases pain, swelling, and inflammation.

FUBOX 40MG TABLET contains febuxostat. It works by inhibiting the enzyme xanthine oxidase (an enzyme that helps your body make uric acid), thereby reducing the level of uric acid in your body. Thus, it reduces the inflammation caused by uric acid crystals in affected joints, thereby reducing pain, swelling and inflammation. FUBOX 40MG TABLET is used to prevent gout attacks or flares.

Your doctor will advise you on how often you take off the FUBOX 40MG TABLET based on your medical condition. The common side effects of FUBOX 40MG TABLET nausea, rash, dizziness, diarrhoea, pain, rash, inaccurate liver function test results, gout flare-ups (intense joint pain that comes on suddenly, often in the middle of the night), localized swelling due to retention of fluids in tissues (oedema). Most of these side effects of FUBOX 40MG TABLET do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects are persistent, reach out to your doctor.

Do not stop taking a FUBOX 40MG TABLET of your own. Stopping it may worsen your condition and increase the risk of increased uric acid levels and future gout attacks. Inform your doctor if you have allergic to FUBOX 40MG TABLET or any other medicines, have a heart problem (FUBOX 40MG TABLET may cause heart problems that can lead to heart attack), or have kidney/liver disease. Some people experience more gout flare-ups when you start taking FUBOX 40MG TABLET. You should continue taking this drug even if gout flare-ups occur. Your doctor may give you combination therapy to prevent flare-ups when you start FUBOX 40MG TABLET. The safety and effectiveness of children under 18 years of age have not been established, so FUBOX 40MG TABLET should not be given to them. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advised to inform your doctor before using FUBOX 40MG TABLET.

    Habit Forming

    No

    Diet & Lifestyle Advise

    • Include more glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, vitamin D, and calcium-enriched supplements. Besides this, turmeric and fish can help in reducing inflammation in the tissue.
    • Please do not go for heavy exercise as it may increase your joint pain in arthritis. Instead, you can do low-impact aerobic movements like walking on a treadmill and swimming. You can also strengthen your muscles by lifting light weights.
    • Your sitting posture is important, especially when you have pain and inflammation. Try to sit as little as possible and only for a short duration of time. Long-term immobility is harmful in conditions like arthritis. Use back support like a rolled-up towel to minimise pain at the back of your spine curve. Keep your knees and hips at a right angle. Besides this, you can also use a footrest if required.
    • Avoid a high purine-rich diet, including organ meats (kidneys, liver, and sweetbreads) and oily fish (sardines, anchovies, and herring).
    • Limit meat in favour of plant-based proteins like beans and legumes.
    • Eat complex carbohydrates, such as whole-grain bread, fruits, and vegetables, rather than sugary sweets and refined carbohydrates like white bread.
    • Avoid drinking beer and alcoholic beverages and drink plenty of water or other nonalcoholic beverages.

    Special Advise

    • Please consult your doctor and check your levels of uric acid two weeks after starting FUBOX 40MG TABLET. Your goal is a uric acid level in your blood that is less than 6 mg/dL.
