Working of the drug:
Bencid - 500mg active constituent Probenecid belongs to a class of medications called uricosuric agents. It works by blocking the reabsorption (entry from urine back into the blood) of urates by the kidneys, thereby increasing the excretion of uric acid and preventing deposition of urate crystals in the joints. It inhibits the elimination (excretion from the blood into the urine) of certain antibiotics like penicillin by the kidneys, thereby delaying its excretion and increasing concentration in the blood.
