Treatment for LNS is symptomatic.  Gout can be treated with allopurinol to control excessive amounts of uric acid.  Kidney stones may be treated with lithotripsy, a technique for breaking up kidney stones using shock waves or laser beams.  There is no standard treatment for the neurological symptoms of LNS.  Some may be relieved with the drugs carbidopa/levodopa, diazepam, phenobarbital, or haloperidol.
