Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I have gouty arthritis and currently, I am drinking Urinorm to lower my uric acid. I am not eating anything that may increase uric acid but I do eat fish and pork. Right now, I am experiencing pain in my right foot and I was wondering if I can drink Colchicine. I bought it when I had my gout attack and I do not want to experience the pain again. I already had three attacks this year. Please suggest.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, you need to be sure that you are having pain due to an acute attack of gout or something else. Since you are already taking Urinorm, and if you have been regular in taking it, you should not have got the attack. In case you have been irregular in taking Urinorm or you have started it recently, it can be an acute attack. An acute attack is best treated by NSAIDs like Diclofenac along with Serratiopeptidase. Colchicine you can take but is not going to help you just in case you have been taking Urinorm regularly. So taking Diclofenac is the right choice at this point in time, with or without Colchicine.

I hope this helps you.
