Is ibuprofen good for gout: Medications and Lifestyle Adjustments to Lower Uric Acid

Medications and Lifestyle Adjustments to Lower Uric Acid

Acute Gout Attack

The goal of treatment during an acute gout attack is suppression of inflammation and control of pain. It is important to note, that if a patient is not on uric acid lowering therapy at the time of an acute attack – then this is not the time to initiate such therapy. However, if a patient is on uric acid lowering therapy at the time of an acute attack, it should not be discontinued.

Treatment of pain and inflammation can be achieved with NSAIDs, colchicine, or corticosteroids (systemic or intra-articular). The choice of which treatment is the right one for a particular patient should be made on the basis of the patient’s co-morbid medical conditions, other medications, and side effect profile.

  1. NSAIDS: Commonly used NSAIDs during an acute gout attack include ibuprofen 800 mg three to four times daily or indomethacin 25 to 50 mg four times daily. Treatment should be discontinued when symptoms resolve.
  2. Colchicine:  Intravenous colchicine is associated with serious toxicities and side effects, so it should be used as an oral formulation only. High dose oral colchicine (1.2 mg followed by 0.6 mg every hour for 6 doses) is generally poorly tolerated because of GI side effects. Lower doses are much better received and may be used in combination with NSAIDs.
  3. Corticosteroids: In patients with contraindications to NSAID use, corticosteroids are the next choice. Corticosteroids can be administered as an injection into the effected joint (intra-articular steroids) or given systemically (orally, such as prednisone or medrol). Intra-articular steriods are useful if only one or two joints are affected and the treating physician is proficient in injecting those joints. Oral corticosteroids can be used starting at 30-40 mg daily tapering over 10-14 days.

Treatment: Uric Acid Lowering Therapy

Indications

Patients who have multiple episodes of acute gout attacks per year or who have tophi on exam are candidates for uric acid lowering therapy. Use of uric acid lowering agents will reduce the frequency of gout attacks and over time, reduce tophi formation, and diminish the risk of joint destruction. The following are indications for uric acid lowering therapy:

  • tophi or chronic arthritis on exam
  • failure of colchicine prophylaxis of acute gouty arthritis
  • renal stones
  • Prior to chemotherapy as prophylaxis of tumor lysis syndrome
  • Extremely high levels of serum uric acid (>12 mg/dl)

Uric acid is the end product of purine (nucleic acid component of DNA) metabolism and is produced normally by the body during tissue remodeling and breakdown. About 20% of uric acid is derived from purines ingested in food. Causes of hyperuricemia can be divided into two major categories: decreased clearance of uric acid from the kidney and increased synthesis of uric acid.

Decreased renal clearance – (90% of patients)

  • Intrinsic kidney disease
  • heart disease causing decreased blood flow to the kidney
  • drugs (loop diuretics, low dose aspirin, cyclosporin)
  • genetic predisposition
  • age related decrease in glomerulofiltration rate

Increased uric acid synthesis

  • Dietary indiscretions
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Increased tissue turnover–tumors, lymphoproliferative disorders
  • Stress induced increased turnover of ATP
  • Alcohol induced turnover of ATP

All patients should be encouraged to modify their lifestyle including limiting alcohol intake, encouraging weight loss where appropriate and decreasing food rich in purines. Co-morbid medical conditions should also be controlled including hypertension, diabetes and hyperlipidemia.

Foods High in Purines

  • Very High – Hearts, herring , mussels, yeast , smelt, sardines, sweetbreads
  • Moderately High – Anchovies, grouse,mutton, veal, bacon, liver salmon, turkey, kidneys, partridge, trout, goose, haddock, pheasant, scallops

Medication Options for Uric Acid Lowering

It is important to note that whenever starting a uric acid lowering treatment, there is a risk of precipitating a gout flare. A plan should be in place for management if this occurs. This generally can be avoided with the co-administration of prophylactic medications (steroids, colchicine, NSAIDs) along with the uric acid lowering therapy.

Probenecid

Probenecid may be given to patients with decreased clearance of uric acid by the kidney and normal renal function. In general its use should be limited to patients under the age of 60. Probenecid acts by inhibiting reabsorption of uric acid in the proximal tubules of the kidney. Starting dose is at 500 mg to 1000 mg daily and increased to 1500 mg to 2000 mg as needed. Occasionally higher doses are needed. Probenecid may precipitate renal stone formation and good oral hydration should be encouraged. Probenecid is contraindicated in patients with renal stones (including calcium and uric acid stones) and in patients with urate nephropathy. Probenecid given inappropriately to patients with hyperuricemia due to overproduction of uric acid can cause renal stones and urate nephropathy.

  • uricosuric
  • decreases uric acid reabsorption at the proximal renal tubules
  • useful in patients with decreased renal clearance of uric acid
  • can only be used if creatinine clearance >40 cc/min
  • must have 24 hour urine for uric acid <800 mg/dl
  • can be used in renal failure
  • increased risk of renal stones

Allopurinol

Allopurinol is a well tolerated, inexpensive, and commonly used uric acid lowering agent. Allopurinol can be started at doses as low as 100 mg daily (100 mg qod if creatinine clearance < 10 cc/min) and titrated by 100 mg every 10-14 days to achieve a serum uric acid level of 4-5 mg/dl.  Liver tests, blood counts, and renal function and should be monitored while on therapy. Toxicites include rash, hepatoxicity, bone marrow suppression and severe hypersensitivity reactions. Medication interactions can occur with allopurinol, warfarin, and theophylline and levels should be monitored. Allopurinol should be avoided in patients on azathiprine, 6-mercaptopurine and cyclophosphamide because of risk for bone marrow toxicity.

  • xanthine oxidase inhibitor
  • prevents production of uric acid
  • useful in both patients with increased synthesis and decreased clearance of uric acid
  • no 24 hour urine needed
  • can be used in renal failure
  • rarely associated with bone marrow suppression, hepatotoxicity, and hypersensitivity reactions

Febuxostat

In 2009, the FDA approved the use of a new xanthine oxidase inhibitor, febuxostat, for the treatment of hyperuricemia in gout. It has demonstrated a dose-dependent decreasee in serum uric acid (daily doses 80mg or 120mg). Its efficacy has been demonstrated in patients with mild or moderate renal impairment and gout. However, it can cause abnormalities in liver function tests and routine monitoring of bloodwork is recommended. Similar to allopurinol, there are interactions of febuxostat with azathioprine, 6MP, and theophylline.

  • xanthine oxidase inhibitor
  • prevents production of uric acid
  • useful in both patients with increased synthesis and decreased clearance of uric acid
  • can be used in mild-moderate renal impairment
  • rarely associated with bone marrow suppression and hepatotoxicity

Pegloticase

Uricase is an enzyme that converts poorly soluable urate (uric acid) to the more soluable allantoin (excreted in the urine). Uricase is present in most mammals, and these mammals with uricase do not develop gout. However, humans and some primates lack uricase (because of evoluationary gene inactivation) and lack the ability to make uric acid more soluable and hence, have gout. Pegloticase is a porcine uricase which was approved by the FDA in September 2010 for the treatment of gout in patients who have failed conventional therapy.

Pegloticase is administered  by intravenous infusion every 2 weeks. Patients should be treated prophylactically for allergic reations to the infusion with steroids and anti-histamines and monitored closely for the development of an infusion reaction. Caution should be used in prescribing this treatment in patients with a known cardiac history.

  • pegylated porcine uricase
  • useful in both patients with increased synthesis and decreased clearance of uric acid
  • increases solubility of uric acid
  • patients should be pre-medicated prior to infusions and monitored for allergic reactions
  • caution should be used in patients with known cardiac history

Treatment: Lifestyle

Nutrition  / Body Composition

Avoidance of purine rich foods and alcohol may help lower uric acid levels and prevent significant fluctuations in serum uric acid that may precipitate acute attacks. Obesity and increased fat  distribution are risk factors for gout.

Eating a healthy balanced diet of low-fat proteins, low-fat dairy and vegetables will help maintain a healthy weight which is beneficial for the prevention of gout attacks as well.

 

Managing a Gout Flare | Arthritis Foundation

Few things in life are more painful than a gout flare, so if you’re awakened in the wee hours by a joint that is tender, swollen, red and radiating heat, you’ll want to act fast. Here’s what you can do when a gout flare starts to ease the pain and reduce the risk of others.

Take Medicine You Have on Hand. Start treatment immediately with over-the-counter ibuprofen (MotrinAdvil) or naproxen (Aleve), but never take aspirin, which can worsen a flare. If you have had a flare before and your doctor has prescribed an anti-inflammatory medication to take in the event of another, take your prescribed medication as your doctor directed. If you are already taking a uric acid-lowering drug to reduce the risk of flares, continue to take that drug.

Ice Down. Applying an ice pack to the painful joint may help ease pain and inflammation. Wrap a pack (a bag of crushed ice or frozen peas will also do) in a dish cloth and apply to the area for 20- to 30-minutes at a stretch several times a day.

Call Your Doctor. Let your doctor know what is going on right away. She may prescribe a new medication, or have you come to the office for a joint fluid test (to confirm the gout diagnosis) or an injection of a corticosteroid to start relieving inflammation quickly. Getting treatment within the first 24 hours of the start of a flare can lessen its length and severity.

Drink Lots of Nonalcoholic Fluids. Staying hydrated helps flush out uric acid (the cause of your joint pain) and prevent kidney stones, another possible problem associated with high uric acid levels. Aim for eight to 16 cups of fluids a day, at least half of them water.

Avoid Alcohol. Although it may be tempting to have a drink to relax when you’re in pain, it’s important to avoid alcohol, especially beer, which contains high levels of purines. The body creates uric acid when it metabolizes purines. Furthermore, alcohol inhibits the excretion of uric acid from your body.

Get a Cane. Walking with a cane during an acute gou flare can help keep pressure off your painful joint.

Elevate Your Foot. If your toe or foot is swollen and painful, raising it with pillows so it’s higher than your chest may help reduce swelling.

Cut Your Sock. Cut the big toe out of cheap socks or cut the toe section off completely if your toes are affected so you can keep your feet warm feet without pressure on your painful toe.

Chill Out. Try to relax if you can; stress can aggravate gout. Watch a movie, talk to a friend, read a book or listen to music to distract yourself.

Revamp Your Menu. Stop eating troublesome high-purine foods, such as shellfish, red meat, sweetbreads and gravies.

Learn Self-Management. Get help setting achievable goals and find support with the free Vim app.

Treat and Reduce Uric Acid

The good news about gout is that it can be controlled. Medicines help in two ways: They reduce pain during an attack, and can reduce the uric acid buildup that causes the condition.

When uric acid builds up in your body, it can form crystals that irritate your joints.

Gout is a type of inflammatory arthritis. An attack may come after an illness or injury. The first sign is often pain in the big toe. It usually affects one joint at a time, but gout can spread to other joints and leave them looking red and swollen.

Get Answers, Advice and Medicine

The pain from a gout attack usually gets better in 3 to 10 days. But you’ll feel better faster if the gout is treated. If you think you might have it, contact your doctor. An exam and tests will show if it’s gout or something else, like an infection.

Talk with your doctor about the best medicines for you. The type will depend on how well your kidneys work, the possible side effects, and other health issues.

Nonprescription Medicines

NSAIDs help reduce pain and swelling in the joints during a gout attack. Popular types are ibuprofen and naproxen. If you take NSAIDs in the first 24 hours, it can help shorten the attack. Other ways to reduce the pain are to ice, rest, and raise the joint.

Prescription Medicines

Your doctor may recommend one of these medicines that you can’t get over the counter:

Preventive Measures

Along with medicine, your doctor may suggest other ways to prevent another attack:

  • Exercise and eat a balanced diet to control your weight.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Stay away from sugary drinks.
  • Avoid excessive alcohol use, especially beer.
  • Eat less meat, especially liver and sweetbreads, and seafood. Get your protein from foods like low-fat dairy. products like yogurt, cheese and milk.

These medicine and lifestyle changes can help you get through an attack and prevent other attacks.

Gout and Ibuprofen – Experiments on Battling Gout

How ibuprofen can relieve your pain during a gout attack

Ibuprofen was first invented and patented as a drug in 1961 by Andrew RM Dunlop and used as a treatment for rheumatoid arthritis first in the UK in 1969 and then in the United States in 1974. It first started as a prescription drug but then after many trials, studies and a good tolerability level in the general population it became a over the counter drug or OTC in pharmacies worldwide as well as your local grocery store.

Ibuprofen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID and comes in a variety of names we all are familiar with like Advil, Motrin and Nurofen. Compared to other NSAIDs its potential for causing serious side effects like stomach ulcers, heart attacks or strokes is believed to be significantly less, although its effectiveness in relieving inflammation and pain is also believed to be less than that of other NSAIDs.

Ibuprofen is used primarily for fever (including post-immunisation fever), mild-moderate pain (including pain relief after surgery), painful periods and inflammatory diseases such as osteoarthritis, juvenile idiopathic arthritis, dental pain, headache, migraine and rheumatoid arthritis.[1]Also remember that aspirin is an NSAID, but is associated with a higher risk for gout and should be avoided.

Ibuprofen is very effective in treating your pain from a gout attack. It may reduce your gout pain but does nothing to reduce uric acid or reduce the crystals in your joints. It may help increase your mobility rather quickly and by being more mobile, it may also help you heal from your gout attack much quicker.

Any type of arthritis including gout heals better and hurts less with some mild exercise. I personally have used it many times to remove the edge off from my painful toe and ibuprofen should always be available in your medicine cabinet especially if you don’t have colchicine readily available or prescribed NSAIDs since it is over the counter medicine. As long as you don’t have renal disease you should be fine in taking ibuprofen but make sure to check with your doctor beforehand.

How to take ibuprofen 

You can take ibuprofen either orally through tablets or liquid and now there’s also a gel or cream that you can use to rub into the affected joint for some relief. If you take tablets make sure to not take it more than 4 times in a day and usually a tablet consists of 200 to 400 mg for a maximum daily dose of 1200 mg. Only take a higher dose with your doctor’s permission. Never exceed the prescribed dosage and wait at least 4 hours in between tablets.

If you experience side effects it is best for you to consult with your doctor and most side effects relate to stomach problems. Make sure to first eat something before taking ibuprofen and if you take it topically like in the cream or gel, there’s less chance of stomach upset.

  • Colchicine Or Naproxen Treatment for ACute gouT – Full Text View

    Gout is the most common cause of inflamed joints affecting 1.4% of adults in the UK. Most patients are treated entirely in general practice yet primary care management is frequently suboptimal. Acute attacks of gout are excruciatingly painful and require urgent drug treatment to reduce inflammation, most commonly with antiinflammatory drugs(NSAIDs) or colchicine. In primary care, NSAIDs are most commonly used but can cause serious side effects such as stomach ulcers and heart disease, particularly in the elderly. Patients frequently require repeat prescriptions for recurrent attacks of acute gout increasing the risk of drug-related side-effects. Low-dose colchicine is popular amongst rheumatologists as it is effective and well tolerated. However, general practitioners (GPs) prescribe colchicine infrequently, probably because in the past the recommendation was for high doses to be prescribed which commonly caused severe diarrhoea. Recently, prescribing recommendations for colchicine have changed, advocating a lower dose regime.

    Currently there is no evidence regarding whether NSAIDs or low-dose colchicine is the best treatment for acute gout. This trial will be the first direct comparison of the effectiveness and side effects of a NSAID (naproxen) and low-dose colchicine to treat acute gout in primary care. Naproxen will be used in this trial because it has been shown to be as effective as oral prednisolone for the treatment of acute gout, is safer than other commonly used NSAIDs such as diclofenac and indomethacin, and is inexpensive.

    Patients consulting their GP with an acute attack of gout in up to 100 general practices will be invited to participate. Treatment success will be assessed by comparing pain reduction between the two drugs. The trial will also monitor side effects, quality of life, and cost effectiveness.

    Gout is the most prevalent inflammatory arthritis. It is largely managed in primary care but treatment is often suboptimal. Acute gout causes attacks of excruciating joint pain requiring rapid treatment. In primary care, treatment is most frequently with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which are effective but have frequent gastrointestinal, cardiovascular and renal side-effects, particularly in the elderly. Oral colchicine has been used to treat acute gout for many years although high-doses can cause intolerable gastrointestinal side-effects. Low-dose colchicine is thought to be as effective and better-tolerated and is now recommended by the British National Formulary. However, there has been no direct comparison of NSAID and low-dose colchicine for acute gout.

    This pragmatic randomised trial will compare the effectiveness of low-dose colchicine (500 mcg three times every eight hours) and naproxen (750 mg immediately followed by 250 mg every eight hours) for reducing pain in adults aged 18 years and over consulting their GP with acute gout, recruited from up to 100 general practices. People experiencing their first attack of gout or a recurrent attack will be eligible to participate. However, all patients registered with each participating practice who have consulted with gout in the preceding two years will be mailed a letter of invitation and Participant Information Sheet informing them that the trial is taking place and encouraging them to consult their GP if they experience an attack of acute gout. Eligibility assessment, informed consent, randomisation, baseline data collection and prescription will be performed when the patient consults in primary care with acute gout. Outcome measures will be collected via self-complete questionnaires at days 1-7 (daily diary), and 4 weeks. The primary outcome measure will be change in worst pain intensity in the previous 24 hours measured daily over days 0-7. Secondary outcome measures include side-effects, time to treatment response, patient global assessment of response to treatment, adherence to treatment, use of other medications for pain relief, and cost. A sample size of 200 patients per treatment arm provides 90% power to detect a minimum clinically important treatment effect of a small standardised effect size of 0.3 between the treatment groups.

    Naproxen better first-line gout option than colchicine in primary care

    Although there is no significant difference between naproxen and low-dose colchicine in terms of improvements in pain intensity among patients with gout flare, naproxen causes fewer side effects, making it the superior first-line option for gout flares in primary care, according to findings published in Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases.

    “Numerous randomized trials demonstrate that NSAIDs treat gout flares effectively,” Edward Roddy, DM, FRCP, of Keele University, in the United Kingdom, and colleagues wrote. “However, side effects are frequent and can be life-threatening. NSAIDs are commonly used in all age groups: Three-quarters of NSAID prescriptions for gout flares in the UK. in 2001-2004 were for diclofenac or indomethacin, two of the most toxic NSAIDs. Naproxen is associated with lower vascular risk than other NSAIDs and is as effective as oral prednisolone for gout flares.”

    “High-dose colchicine is effective but commonly causes gastrointestinal side effects,” they added. “Lower doses are as effective but better tolerated. The recommended ‘low-dose’ regimen in the UK is 500 [µg] two to four times per day, however, the effectiveness and tolerability of this dose have never been evaluated. A direct comparison of an NSAID and low-dose colchicine is needed to inform choice for patients and practitioners.”

    To analyze the effectiveness and safety of naproxen compared with low-dose colchicine for gout flares in primary care, Roddy and colleagues conducted an open-label randomized trial of 399 adults from 100 general practices throughout England. Participants were randomly assigned to one of two treatment groups, with 200 receiving 750 mg of naproxen immediately followed by 250 mg of the drug every 8 hours for 7 days. The remaining 199 were treated with 500 µg of colchicine three times per day for 4 days.

    The primary outcome was the change from baseline in worst pain intensity in the past 24 hours, using the 0 to 10 numeric rating scale, measured daily through the first 7 days. Mean change from baseline was compared between groups. A total of 349 participants completed the primary outcome data at day 7.

    According to the researchers, there was no significant difference between the groups in terms of average changes in pain scores throughout the 7-day period. Among participants in the colchicine group, compared with those treated with naproxen, the mean difference was –0.18 (95% CI, –0.53 to 0.17).

    However, during the 7-day treatment period, diarrhea was more common among those treated with colchicine compared with the naproxen group, by 45.9% to 20% (OR = 3.31; 2.01-5.44). This was also true of headaches, with 20.5% in the colchicine group and 10.7% among those treated with naproxen (OR = 1.92; 95% CI, 1.03-3.55). Constipation was less common in the colchicine group, at 4.8% compared with 19.3% in the naproxen group (OR = 0.24; 95% CI, 0.11-0.54).

    “NSAIDs and colchicine are not the only drugs used to treat gout flares,” Roddy and colleagues wrote. “The American College of Physicians recommends corticosteroids as first-line treatment, whereas other guidelines advise being guided by comorbidities, contraindications, previous response and the pattern of joint involvement. While randomized trials have compared NSAIDs and prednisolone, future research should compare the effectiveness and safety of colchicine and corticosteroids, particularly in patients with contraindications to NSAIDs.”

    They added, “We found little difference in pain reduction between naproxen and low-dose colchicine, but naproxen was associated with fewer side effects, less analgesic use and slightly lower costs, suggesting that, in the absence of contraindications, naproxen should be used ahead of low-dose colchicine to treat gout flares in primary care.” – by Jason Laday

    90,000 How effective is ibuprofen for gout?

    Ibuprofen for gout is an effective remedy for pain and inflammation. Gout is a form of arthritis characterized by a buildup of uric acid in the blood. In addition, acute gout usually causes pain and inflammation in only one joint, where chronic gout can cause symptoms in multiple joints. When ibuprofen for gout is used as a treatment option, the swelling, redness, and pain usually decrease.The big toe is the most commonly affected joint, but gout can occur in any joint in the body.

    Causes of gout include the production of excess uric acid or the body’s inability to excrete uric acid. In addition, those with kidney disease, diabetes, anemia, and leukemia are also at risk of developing gout. In addition, gout can be hereditary and is most common in men, people who drink alcoholic beverages, and postmenopausal women.Taking diuretics or pills with water can also predispose people to gout, as can obesity.

    Take ibuprofen for gout only after consulting your doctor. Other medications may be warranted and more effective in managing symptoms. While taking ibuprofen to treat gout can help reduce symptoms, side effects such as upset stomach and abnormal bleeding can occur. In addition, those taking blood thinning medications should refrain from taking ibuprofen for gout unless deemed safe by a healthcare professional.

    Although symptoms of gout may be mild, severe symptoms may occur. These include sudden, throbbing or persistent pain, joint soreness, and even fever. In some cases, gout can permanently damage joints and reduce range of motion. Diagnostic tests used to determine if gout is present include blood tests to assess uric acid levels, urinalysis, x-rays, and analysis of joint fluid.In addition to anti-inflammatory drugs, drugs such as codeine, corticosteroids, and colchicine may be recommended to treat symptoms.

    Dietary changes can also help relieve gout symptoms and usually include avoiding alcohol, limiting meat and fatty foods, and cutting back on foods containing a substance called purine. Examples of foods containing purine include sardines, herring, legumes, and spinach. Other foods that contain purine include asparagus, peas, and brewer’s yeast.High levels of dietary purine can worsen pain and swelling, and may not consume enough complex carbohydrates.

    Symptoms of gout can be severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily life. In some cases, the pain and swelling on the big toe is so severe that wearing the show becomes nearly impossible without excruciating pain. When this type of persistent pain occurs, the healthcare professional may need further evaluation to determine if there is permanent joint damage.
