Dr. Jeremy Gitomer answered:

For gout attack could i take : diclofenac 50mg , colchicine & allopurinol 100mg ,all together ?

Allopurinol Chronic

Knee
For acute gout colchicine and diclofenac are reasonable. Do not exceed the recommended dose of colchicine and stop immediately if diarrhea occurs. Allopurinol is to prevent chronic gout. Many patients starting allopurinol will have an acute gout attack because attacks occur when uric acid levels go up or down. To prevent this some patients take colchicine daily for up to 6 months.

I have been taking Allopurinol for 1 week. I now have a gout attack. Can I take Colchicine as well? I

Wrong order!

Taking allopurinol during an attack will worsen and prolong it. My regimen is this: establish diagnosis. You can start an NSAID, inject the affected joint(s) with steroids, start colchicine, bid is adequate with the other meds. After three days start allopurinol 100mg x 1wk, 200mg x 1wk, and then the full dose. The cochicine can be cut back to once daily.

I have gout, can i take colchicine with indocin together?

Yes

Acetaminophen
I know of no drug-drug interaction between these 2 medications. You can always have a pharmacist check their computers. But the two medications listed work differently and hence there is no reason why they can't.
