    Eliminated the gout symptoms, but caused diarrhea. I take only 1 pill per day and only if the gout tries a come back. Also, I stop taking my statin drug when taking colcrys. I take the generic type of the drug.

So awful I had to be confined to bed,pretty much 24/7 for 3 weeks before I gave in. The number of trips to bathroom was so frequent and urgent I didn't dare even leave the house. I worry about the speed of weight los ... Show Full Comment
