What is a typical dosage of Allopurinol?

A typical dose of allopurinol depends on the type of condition the medication is prescribed to treat. For example, adults suffering from gout will typically start with a low 100 mg. dosage, which is slowly increased over a week to not more than 800 mg. per daily. Treatment of kidney stones is between 100 mg. and 800 mg. daily. To increase the success of certain medical procedures, your doctor may prescribe 600 to 800 mg. daily starting three days prior to the procedure. The dosage for children prior to medical procedures is typically 100 to 300 mg. daily. These doses are averages. Your doctor will determine the proper dose for you based on your condition and medical history.
