Urinol uses


Pharmacological action

Urinol is a medication that violates the synthesis of uric acid. This drug is a structural analog of hypoxanthine. It inhibits the enzyme xanthine oxidase, which is involved in the conversion of hypoxanthine to xanthine and xanthine to uric acid. This is due to decrease in the concentration of uric acid and its salts in body fluids and urine, which helps dissolve existing uric acid deposits and prevents their formation in tissues and kidney. Urinol increases urinary excretion of hypoxanthine and xanthine.

After oral administration Urinol is almost entirely absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract. This medication is metabolized to form alloxantin, which retains the ability to sufficiently long to inhibit xanthine oxidase. Cmax of Urinol in the blood plasma is reached after an average of 1.5 h, alloxantin - in 4.5 h after a single dose.
