Abstract

Objectives: The objective of the study was to determine the appropriate administration time of allopurinol between morning and night administration. Method: This research was conducted in a controlled and open label. Eleven patients (six in night and five in morning) were fulfilled the criteria. Results and Discussion: no significant difference in the uric acid reduction between night and morning administration (p 0.435). However, night administration of allopurinol showed lower uric acid level reduction (-2.45 vs -0.98). In adverse reactions events, the night administration of allopurinol contributed to nausea and flatulence. Conclusion: Allopurinol provides better uric acid reduction at night but should be caution of the side effects.
