What is Febuxostat Zentiva tablets 120 mg x 28 and what is it used for?

Febuxostat Zentiva tablets contain the active substance febuxostat and are used for the treatment of gout, which is associated with an excessive amount of a chemical substance called uric acid. In some people, uric acid can accumulate in the blood in an amount that may be too high to remain dissolved. When this happens, urate crystals can form in and around the joints and kidneys. These crystals can cause sudden intense pain, redness, warmth, and swelling of the joint (known as a gout attack). If not treated, larger deposits called tophi can form in and around the joints. Tophi can cause damage to the joints and bones.

Febuxostat Zentiva acts by reducing the concentration of uric acid. Maintaining a low concentration of uric acid by taking Febuxostat Zentiva once daily, every day, stops the formation of crystals and eventually reduces symptoms. Maintaining a sufficiently low concentration of uric acid for a long enough period may also reduce the size of tophi.

Febuxostat Zentiva 120 mg tablets are also used for the treatment and prevention of high levels of uric acid in the blood that may occur when starting chemotherapy for blood cancers.
