My husband suffers from gout and had a particularily bad case in the left ankle. Went to the ER specifically for colchicine because we heard of the pain relief that came with it. Never again.

Comment:
First time use because I can not use Nsaids anylonger. It was awful. Took as Dr. Directed. One pill .06 per hour for 4 hours and then 3 the next day and following if persists. About 8 hours after the 2nd day my toe pain was mostly gone and I started feeling nausea and began forced diarrhea which lasted 28 hours about every 30 minutes. Also one heavy bout of vomiting. I WILL NEVER TAKE AGAIN!
