Drug Class and Mechanism

Benemid works by removing the extra uric acid from the body. Benemid does not cure gout, but after you have been taking it for a few months it will help prevent gout attacks. Benemid will help prevent gout attacks only as long as you continue to take it.

Benemid is also used to prevent or treat other medical problems that may occur if too much uric acid is present in the body.

Benemid is sometimes used with certain kinds of antibiotics to make them more effective in the treatment of infections.

Missed Dose

If you miss a dose of Benemid, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.


Store Benemid at room temperature, between 68 and 77 degrees F (20 and 25 degrees C). Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Keep Benemid out of the reach of children and away from pets.
