Anti-inflammatories: Acute gout is best treated with anti-inflammatory medications. Naproxyn, indomethacin, Ibuprofen and many other type drugs work well. Some physicians will use steroid drugs like prednisone. This all depends on your medical history and medicaitons you are on. Colchinine works very wee also but is an older treatment. All have side effects. Not all are comfortable using colchicine.
