Xanthine oxidase inhibitors like febuxostat are first line drugs for gout.
This can be combined with probenecid which is a uricosuric if the Uric acid level isn’t being lowered sufficiently.
Do not use probenecid if there is significantly impaired renal function ie GFR is less than 50 ml per minute.
