Pharmacological action:
- An acute attack of gout apparently occurs as a result of increasing uric acid concentration that results in deposition of monosodium urate in the joint tissue.
- Piperazine known for many ‘ears to be an active drug in the treatment of gout and urinary lithiasis. It is claimed to increase the solubilitv of urates in the urine. It is relatively non- toxic.
- Colchicine gives rapid relief from pain in acute attacks of gout and the drug is specific for this condition to (he extent that it can he used as a diagnostic agent in gout and gouty arthritis. Colchicinc possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Although it is highly effective in treating acute gouty arthritis, it is not effective for other types of pain. It is not an analgesic and does not affect uric acid clearance. Insteadcolchicine binds to proteins in microtubules of neutrophils. This turn. inhibits the migration of neutrophils into the area of inflammation, thereby interfering with the inflammatory response to urate crystal deposition.Atropine sulphate is added to relieve the spasm of the urinary tract.
Ph ar macoki net ics:
- Urosolvine contains a typical uricosuric agent that promotes the urinary excretion of uric acid and thereby lower
serum uric acid concentration
- Sodium citrate is an alkalinising agent since the citrate is converted into bicarbonate , alkaline urine is definitely more
suitable for the excretion of uratcs in a more soluble form.
