2 doctors agree

In brief: Use both

The Allopurinol can mobilize uric acid and the Indocin (indomethacin) may prevent gout attack.
Good strategy.

I believe dr, Greer Meant colchicine in his response as was asked in the question. The indocin he mentions is an anti-inflammatory commonly used to treat acute gouty attacks.
1 doctor agrees

In brief: See below

Colchicine is usually used in acute gout where Indocin (indomethacin) is used for long term care to help avoid gout.
