    Febuxostat, sold under the brand names Uloric among others, is a medication used long-term to treat gout due to high uric acid levels.

It is taken by mouth.Common side effects include liver problems, nausea, joint pain, and a rash. Serious side effects include an increased risk of death as compared with allopurinol, Stevens-Johnson syndrome, and anaphylaxis. Use is not recommended during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
