Febuxostat - What is it for

Febuxostat belongs to a class of medicines called xanthine oxidase inhibitor. It is used for reducing uric acid (also known as urate) levels, stopping crystal formation and dissolving crystals for excretion. Over time, it reduces gout flares and its associated symptoms. Keeping uric acid levels sufficiently low for a long enough period can also shrink tophi (bumps containing urate deposits at the joints).
