Allopurinol is used in the treatment of many symptoms of gout including tophi (collection of uric acid crystals in the tissues especially around joints) joint destruction and uric acid stones. Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by increased blood levels of uric acid. Allopurinol works by reducing uric acid production in the body thus preventing crystals from forming.

Allopurinol is also used to manage the increased uric acid levels in the blood of people with certain cancers such as leukemia. It is also prescribed to manage some types of kidney stones.
