For gout, can one take Colchicine and Ibuprofen 400 together or is it one or the other? Thank you.
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. ...Read more

Can I take tramadol 325mg 3x a day for gout and colchicine 2x a day and febuxostat 1x a day? And ketobest for my kidneys 3x a day?
Gout: Stop taking everything in the cabinet. See your podiatrist or a family physician that can treat gout (more rare than you think). It may be that your Febuxostat is causing your gout flare. It may also need to be discontinued until it calms down. Personally, I don't like Colchicine. Either way consult your physician before you take a bunch of meds together. ...Read more
Interaction between Xarelto and Colchicine. I read that Colchicine affects the platelets, more likely to bleed? I take 3 Colchicine for gout flares.
Interaction: Your pharmacist can be very helpful in answering any questions related to your medications. If you're under effective treatment for gout, you shouldn't have any gout flares. If you do and only took colchicine for a few doses, I wouldn't expect a major problem because you also take xarelto daily. Your pharmacist can confirm this for you. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
