Feboxostat, colchicine, and ketolorac have been effective gout treatments this past year, but not for this longer than usual 10 day gout attack. Why?

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

I had a gout attack about 20 days back and still have little pain. Is it safe colchicine for a few weeks as pain is not going totally away with nsaids?
Maybe: Without knowing medical history, hard to tell you for sure. Normally for an acute attack of gout, if dosed correctly, pain should subside within 48 hours. Colchicine used correctly in acute attack will either resolve problem or cause severe diarhea in a short period of time. How do you know it is definately gout? Have you had it before? See your physician before doing anything else. ...Read more
Hi regarding Gout. Is Colchicine a pain killer that will work similar to another pain killer or is it more a treatment that will work only after taking for a few days NOT instantly? Thank you Rob
Helps in gout: Especially in acute attack. Steroid injection will give quicker relief, best method is prevention of an attack. Always hydrate well (drink lots of water all the time I do!) avoid alcohol and too much meat, get your uric acid monitored by a physician to avoid systemic damage to your body. ...Read more
For acute gout Colchicine and diclofenac are reasonable. Do not exceed the recommended dose of Colchicine and stop immediately if diarrhea occurs.

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
Got gout attack once a month even control food intake and drink 2.5 Liter a day. Back to normal after taken colchicine and painkiller. Is it normal?
Went to Dr for knee pain was given colchicine o.6mg twice daily blood work came back no gouts took colchicine 12 days before test is that norma?
Possible: Gout can be diagnosed by obtaining fluid from an affected joint and then looking for essentially gout crystals under a microscope. Most patients with gout have excruciating pain, swelling, and warmth, and redness to the joint. Colchicine should not lower the uric acid level. A patient can also have a normal uric acid level but still have gout. I am not sure if you have your answer yet. Good luck ...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
