What is Sulfinpyrazone Used For?
Sulfinpyrazone is used for the treatment of gouty arthritis. It functions by dropping the quantity of uric acid in the blood which leads to the prevention of gout attacks. This medication is not for the treatment of abrupt or intense gout attack and can worsen it. Gout arises when the uric acid level intensifies; creating uric acid rocks that cause pain in the joints. Sulfinpyrazone belongs to a group of medications called uricosurics. It allows the kidneys to clear the uric acid, thus decreasing the increased levels of uric acid and averting the formation of uric acid crystals. Dropping levels of uric acid can be beneficial for your kidneys.

What is a Generic Drug?
A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.
