Clinical Question:
Does febuxostat (Uloric) offer any advantages over allopurinol in preventing gout?

Bottom-line:
Febuxostat is not better than allopurinol for preventing gout and has a higher rate of initial flares. It should only be considered in patients who have experienced a serious adverse event with allopurinol.
