urosolvin sachet - pharmacological properties
urosolvin sachet – pharmacological properties

 Piperazine known for many years to be an active drug in the treatment of gout and urinary lithiasis. It is claimed to increase the solubility of urates in the urine. It is relatively non- toxic.

 Colchicine gives rapid relief from pain in acute attacks of gout and the drug is specific for this condition to the extent that it can be used as a diagnostic agent in gout and gouty arthritis. Colchicine possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Although it is highly effective in treating acute gouty arthritis, it is not effective for other types of pain. It is not an analgesic and does not affect uric acid clearance. Instead,colchicine binds to proteins in microtubules of neutrophils. This binding in turn, inhibits the migration of neutrophils into the area of inflammation, thereby interfering with the inflammatory response to urate crystal deposition.

Atropine sulphate is added to relieve the spasm of the urinary tract.


 Urosolvine contains a typical uricosuric agent that promotes the urinary excretion of uric acid and thereby lower serum uric acid concentration.

Sodium citrate is an alkalinising agent since the citrate is converted into bicarbonate, alkaline urine is definitely more suitable for the excretion of urates in a more soluble form.
