In brief: Yes......

However there are other medicines that may be better. Treatment of an acute gouty flare is different that that for prevention of these.
See your primary care doctor to see what medicine or combinations of medicine is best for you.

Colchicine may be given as both a prevention or as a treatment. The difference is the dosage of the drug.
