Allopurinol And Colchicine Taken Together
I started allopurinol 2 weeks ago and now have a gout attack should I stop and take colchicine or take both together?
I'm taking allopurinol together with colchicine. If no more flare, can I drop colchicine but continously take allopurinol? Will gout attack reoccur?
Not that I: Am aware of, but bad pain from gout certainly could.
Allopurinol Chronic: 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.See 2 more doctor answers
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.See 1 more doctor answer

Can I take colchicine alone as a preventative for gout? Will it lower uric acid levels or must I take with either Allopurinol or Uloric?
Colchicine: Colchicine alone is effective in diminishing gout. Yes. Allopurinol is not mandatory but of course helps. Also, avoid alcohol, animal fats, organ meats and shellfish. Limit other meats to 4 oz per day. Avoid high fructose corn syrup containing drinks. Add egg whites, quinoa, soy as protein. Eat lots of fruit and veggies. Drink 3 liters per day.See 1 more doctor answer
Taking indomethacin & colchicines for gout, 10 years. Doctor recommends allopurinol. Says once I start allopurinol, I have to stay on it for life & that I can’t stop taking it. Is this true?
Often: Often required, but dose can be tapered at intervals to determine minimal dose required.See 1 more doctor answer
Can I lower my elevated uric acid with gout diet? My doctor only prescribe colchicine 3x a week with no allopurinol or febuxostat.
Which is more affective pain management of a gouty foot flare-up, Naproxen or Celebrex (celecoxib)? (along with Colchicine) Allipurinol already prescribed.
Probably naproxen: Naproxen has been used for many years to treat acute episodes of gout-colcichine has been used longer but has more side effects if pushed.Celebrex (celecoxib) is an N SAID too but used more for having less gastrointestinal side effects. So the person who knows best with your history is the prescribing. Doctor.See 1 more doctor answer

Slightly high...: Your alanine transaminase (alt) was slightly high at 80. It should be less than 60. It is a sensitive but not a specific test of liver function. Talk to your doctor about what you ought to do and what might be causing the elevation. Also talk to him about a low purine diet which may help you avoid having to take medications with potentially adverse liver effects. Colchicine also ought to be prn...
