    My husband has suffered with gout for about 20 years. He has been taking probenecid with colchicine for most of that time with good results. He used to take the old colchicine (before colcrys) when he would feel like he was getting a full blown attack either becuase he over indulged or forget to take his daily pill.The old colchicine always worked for him and knocked it out. This new "colcrys ... Show Full Comment

    Frustrated that the drug maker can profitably sell this pill for $5 for 100 tablets, but now sells it for $5 a tablet now that they have an FDA patent. Insurance wouldn't cover the Colcrys prescription, so I ordered generic colchicine from a reputable mail-order Canadian pharmacy.
