Treating gout Colchicine Colgout

Uses
Colgout (Colchicine) is used to prevent gout attacks and the severe pain they cause, as well as being used to provide relief from the pain that occurs during gout attacks. Gout is caused by excess uric acid levels, which can cause the release of inflammatory enzymes, resulting in pain and inflammation of the joints.

This drug is a type of anti-gout agent, and its active ingredient was originally extracted from a plant called the autumn crocus. It works by preventing white blood cells from entering the affected area, thereby leading to reduced swelling and pain. In some cases, this medicine may be used to treat FMF (familial Mediterranean fever).

Dosage and Administration
If you are affected by gout, and your doctor has prescribed Colgout (Colchicine) tablets for you, it is important that you follow the dosage instructions that your doctor gives you. Patients who are taking this drug for gout prophylaxis are often instructed to take 0.5mg to 0.6mg once per day, for 3 to 4 days per week. However, this applies to patients who usually suffer less than 1 attack per year. Patients who suffer from more than one attack per year may need to take it every day, and in rare cases, dosages ranging from 1mg to 1.8mg per day may be prescribed. In some cases, doctors prescribe a dosage of 0.5mg to 1.5mg per day for patients who are treating Bechet's disease.

Patients who take Colgout (Colchicine) may sometimes experience side effects, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Hair loss
  • Digestive disturbances
  • Cramps or pain affecting the stomach

You must inform your doctor if you feel unwell. Some patients who take this drug may exhibit symptoms of serious reactions. If you notice muscular pain, paleness of the skin or lips, numbness of the toes or fingers, bruising, fatigue or any other signs of a serious reaction, you must consult your doctor immediately.

Precautions
Patients who are currently suffering from or have a history of any medical condition affecting the kidneys or liver should tell their doctor about their condition before taking this medicine.

Avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice while you are being treated with this medicine.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.
