Fabulas with the active ingredient febuxostat is classified as a xanthine oxidase inhibitor used to prevent acute gout attacks. Gout occurs when there is a high level of uric acid in the bloodstream that builds up in the joints causing attacks of inflammation, redness and pain. The medication works by decreasing the amount of uric acid produced by the body to prevent the build up in the joints.
