What is it used for?
Relieving the pain of acute attacks of gout. Colchicine is used for people who can't take anti-inflammatory painkillers called NSAIDs, eg diclofenac.
Preventing attacks of gout in people who are starting treatment with long-term preventive medicines such as allopurinol, febuxostat or sulfinpyrazone.
How does it work?
In gout, crystals of uric acid are deposited in certain joints. White blood cells migrate to the areas of the body where uric acid has been deposited. They attempt to engulf the crystals, and, as a result, lactic acid and pro-inflammatory enzymes are released. These substances cause the characteristic pain and swelling of gout.
Colchicine stops white blood cells moving into the inflamed areas and this reduces pain and inflammation in the joint.
