Probenecid-AFT general information

What is Probenecid-AFT used for?

Probenecid-AFT tablets 500mg are used to treat gout and gouty arthritis to relieve painful symptoms at all stages of the condition, also to prevent attacks of gout in people at risk of developing gout. Gout is caused by build up of uric acid in the blood (hyperuricaemia) and the deposition of uric acid crystals in the joints and tissues. Probenecid-AFT 500mg is also used to prevent hyperuricaemia which can be induced or aggravated by some diuretics that are used to treat oedema and hypertension. Probenecid-AFT tablets 500mg also have another use in increasing the effectiveness of penicillin antibiotics by prolonging the length of time the antibiotic remains in the blood before it is excreted into the urine.

How does Probenecid-AFT work?

Probenecid-AFT tablets 500mg contain probenecid, which is a uricosuric drug that promotes the excretion of uric acid in the urine and this reduces the concentration of uric acid in the blood. Probenecid-AFT acts on the tubules of the kidneys and blocks the reabsorption of uric acid by competing with the membrane transporter for uric acid and preventing its uptake. High concentrations of uric acid in the blood (hyperuricaemia) result in the formation of crystals which are deposited in the joints and tissues, causing the painful symptoms associated with gout. As the amount of uric acid in the blood is reduced existing crystals are dissolved and the formation of new crystals is limited. Probenecid-AFT tablets 500mg relieve joint pain caused by gout which allows greater mobility of the affected joint; they also help prevent further joint destruction due to deposition of more uric acid crystals. Probenecid-AFT tablets 500mg also increase and prolong the blood concentration of beta-lactam antibiotics like penicillin, by inhibiting the secretion of penicillin by the kidneys into the urine, which means it stays in the blood for longer and is therefore more effective.
