What should I know about allopurinol sodium for injection before taking it?

Before taking allopurinol sodium for injection, you should know that it may interact with:

  • didanosine (ddI)

  • chlorpropamide
  • cyclosporine
  • diuretics
  • mercaptopurine
  • probenecid
  • some gout medications

Tell your doctor about all prescription medications and over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and supplements you take before starting treatment with allopurinol.

If you are allergic to allopurinol, or have liver of kidney disease, your doctor will not put you on allopurinol sodium for injection. This drug is not known to harm an unborn baby, but can pass into breast milk so tell your doctor if you are nursing.
