Febuxostat - Dosage and How to Use

How should Febuxostat be used?

Febuxostat should be taken as prescribed by the doctor. The usual dose is one tablet daily, taken at the same time of each day. The tablets can be taken with or without food. Continue to take Febuxostat as prescribed even when you are not experiencing gout flare or attack.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you forget to take the tablet, take it as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the forgotten dose. Resume the next dose at the regular timing. Do not take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet.
