Odorless tasteless white microcrystalline powder.
4.3 Safety Profile
Human poison byingestion. Poison experimentally byintraperitoneal and subcutaneous routes. Anexperimental teratogen. Human systemiceffects by ingestion: blood leukopenia,dermatitis, jaundice, muscle weakness,thrombocytopenia. When heated todecomposition it emits toxic fumes of NOx.An FDA proprietary drug used as a xanthineoxidase inhibitor.
4.4 Storage
Ambient temperatures.
4.5 Usage
Allopurinol does not reduce serum uric acid levels by increasing renal uric acid excretion; instead it lowers plasma urate levels by inhibiting the final steps in uric acid biosynthesis. Uric acid in humans is formed primarily by xanthine oxidase-catalyzed oxidation of hypoxanthine and xanthine to uric acid. Allopurinol (8) and its primary metabolite, alloxanthine (9) [CAS: 2465-59-0], are inhibitors of xanthine oxidase. Inhibition of the last two steps in uric acid biosynthesis by blocking xanthine oxidase reduces the plasma concentration and urinary excretion of uric acid and increases the plasma levels and renal excretion of the more soluble oxypurine precursors. Normally, in humans the urinary purine content is almost solely uric acid; treatment with allopurinol results in the urinary excretion of hypoxanthine, xanthine, and uric acid, each with its independent solubility. Lowering the uric acid concentration in plasma below its limit of solubility facilitates the dissolution of uric acid deposits. The effectiveness of allopurinol in the treatment of gout and hyperuricemia that results from hematogical disorders and antineoplastic therapy has been demonstrated.

5.6 Cleanup Methods
Wipe up spillage or collect spillage using a high- efficiency vacuum cleaner. Avoid breathing dust. Place spillage in appropriately labeled container for disposal. Wash spill site.
5.7 DisposalMethods
SRP: Expired or waste pharmaceuticals shall carefully take into consideration applicable DEA, EPA, and FDA regulations. It is not appropriate to dispose by flushing the pharmaceutical down the toilet or discarding to trash. If possible return the pharmaceutical to the manufacturer for proper disposal being careful to properly label and securely package the material. Alternatively, the waste pharmaceutical shall be labeled, securely packaged and transported by a state licensed medical waste contractor to dispose by burial in a licensed hazardous or toxic waste landfill or incinerator.
SRP: At the time of review, regulatory criteria for small quantity disposal are subject to significant revision, however, household quantities of waste pharmaceuticals may be managed as follows: Mix with wet cat litter or coffee grounds, double bag in plastic, discard in trash.
5.8 Exposure Standards and Regulations
The Approved Drug Products with Therapeutic Equivalence Evaluations List identifies currently marketed prescription drug products, including allopurinol, approved on the basis of safety and effectiveness by FDA under sections 505 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
5.9 Fire Fighting Procedures
Water spray, dry chemical, carbon dioxide, or foam as appropriate for surrounding fire and materials.
As with all fires, evacuate personnel to a safe area. Firefighters should use self-contained breathing equipment and protective clothing.

5.12 Other Preventative Measures
This material is assumed to be combustible. As with all dry powders, it is advisable to ground mechanical equipment in contact with dry material to dissipate the potential buildup of static electricity.
As a general rule, when handling USP Reference Standards avoid all contact and inhalation of dust, mists, and/or vapors associated with the material. Wash thoroughly after handling.
/Use/ safety glasses or goggles /and/ protect exposed skin.
5.13 Protective Equipment and Clothing
Engineering controls such as exhaust ventilation are recommended.
Use a NIOSH-approved respirator, if it is determined to be necessary by an industrial hygiene survey involving air monitoring. In the event that a respirator is not required, an approved dust mask should be used.
5.14 Reactivities and Incompatibilities
/Incompatible with/ strong oxidizing agents.
Allopurinol sodium injection has been reported to be incompatible with various drugs (eg, sodium bicarbonate), but the compatibility depends on several factors (eg, concentrations of the drugs, resulting pH, temperature). Specialized references should be consulted for specific compatibility information.
