Anturane in Detail - Patient Information: Side Effects
Stop taking sulfinpyrazone and seek emergency medical attention if you experience an allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of your throat; swelling of your lips, tongue, or face; or hives).
Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur. Heartburn, nausea, and upset stomach are the most common side effects of sulfinpyrazone therapy. Take each dose with food, milk, or an antacid to decrease these side effects.
Contact your doctor as soon as possible if you experience an acute attack of gouty arthritis.
Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.

Anturane FDA Prescribing Information: Side Effects
The most frequently reported adverse reactions with Anturane (sulfinpyrazone) have been upper gastrointestinal disturbances. In these patients it is advisable to administer the drug with food, milk, or antacids. Despite this precaution, Anturane (sulfinpyrazone) may aggravate or reactivate peptic ulcer.
Blood dyscrasias (anemia, leukopenia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia, and aplastic anemia) have rarely been reported. There has also been a published report associating Anturane (sulfinpyrazone) , administered concomitantly with other drugs including colchicine, with leukemia following long term treatment of patients with gout. However, the circumstances involved in the two cases reported are such that a cause-and-effect relationship to Anturane (sulfinpyrazone) has not been clearly established.
