Frequently asked questions about colchicine

What is colchicine?

Colchicine is indicated for use as a preventative measure against gout flare-ups. Gout is a type of arthritis caused by uric acid crystals building up in the joints. Gout attacks can be extremely painful and often come on without warning. Like other forms of arthritis, gout can affect nearly any joint in the body but is most commonly felt in the big toe before the condition spreads to other areas.


Common symptoms of a gout flare-up include:
- Intense, sharp joint pain
- Joint discomfort (often lingering after an attack)
- Inflammation
- Redness
- Swelling
- Tenderness
- Burning, or warm feelings in the affected area
- Limited range of motion


Colchicine helps prevent these symptoms and reduces the discomfort caused by gout attacks.

What is colchicine used to treat?

Colchicine is indicated for use as a prophylactic (preventative) measure against gout attacks. These are painful flareups that cause intense pain, inflammation, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Colchicine is not a treatment for gout; it is not used to “cure” the disease. Instead, regular administration of this medication helps patients who have been diagnosed with gout manage pain and prevent the flareups that cause the symptoms listed above.

How does colchicine work?

Colchicine is classified as an anti-gout agent. It works by blocking your body’s inflammatory response to a buildup of uric crystals. This inflammatory response is what causes the pain, swelling, and tenderness during a gout flareup. By blocking these mechanisms in the body, colchicine can prevent symptoms of gout attacks. It is important to note that colchicine is not a “cure” for gout. Instead, this medication mitigates discomfort and helps restore the quality of life for patients who have been diagnosed with gout.

What are the common side effects of colchicine?

Colchicine has been shown to cause some side effects. If these mild reactions do not go away within a few days, talk to your health care provider.


Common symptoms caused by taking colchicine include:
- Diarrhea
- Nausea

- Stomach pain


This is not a complete list of adverse reactions caused by colchicine. Call your doctor right away if you experience any symptoms of muscle pain, bruising/ bleeding, tingling in fingers or toes, fatigue, fever, and chills.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with, as well as any medication/ supplements you are currently taking. Do not eat grapefruit or drink grapefruit juice while taking colchicine. Colchicine can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant.

What is the typical starting dose of colchicine?

Colchicine is primarily prescribed as an oral capsule containing .6 mg of colchicine. As a preventative measure against gout flareups, it is recommended that adults take one or two capsules a day. The maximum recommended dosage of colchicine is 1.2 mg per day. This may vary depending on other medications you are taking for gout.

Do not discontinue or increase your dosage of colchicine without consulting your doctor first. Take the medication exactly as prescribed, and inform your doctor if you begin to experience any side effects while taking the medication.
