Problems Associated With Uloric Usage
Uloric (febuxostat) is used in the treatment of gout, which is a type of arthritis. The manufacturer claims that Uloric helps patients by reducing the amount of uric acid in the blood. However, its negative aspects can easily outweigh the potential benefits.
Unfortunately, the medication has a number of side effects, which include the following:
- Heart attacks
- Kidney problems
- Liver failure
- Severe bleeding
A Drug Already Under Suspicion
Remarkably, a safety consultant who was previously employed by the manufacturer filed a lawsuit opposing the drug. She claimed that the company had failed to issue warnings about these extremely dangerous side effects of Uloric usage. This failure allegedly left patients and their doctors unaware of how dangerous the drug could be.
