Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hello! I am Medlin and I am 63 years old. It is diagnosed that I am suffering from gout and my doctor prescribed me Probenecid tablets. I want to ask you following: is Probenecid a cure for gout? If it is not (I have heard that it is not), then why I am taking these pills at all? Thank you in advance!


Hello, Medlin! Probenecid is not cure for gout, but this drug helps in preventing recurring gouty attacks. Probenecid, also, reduce risk of kidney illness. But, if you got gout attack do not take Probenecid, because it cannot stop this attack and can make it even worse. I hope that my answer helped you!
