Colcrys is a prescription medication that contains colchicine, an alkaloid used to prevent or treat gout attacks in adults.

Colcrys works by reducing the inflammation associated with gout. Colcrys may also be prescribed for the prophylaxis of gout attacks.

Use and Dosage

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking colchicine and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions regarding the information, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth with or without food, exactly as directed by your doctor. Dosing recommendations vary widely and may be different from the following recommendations. Taking more than the recommended dose may not increase this drug’s effectiveness and may increase your risk for side effects. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

If you are taking this medication to treat a gout attack, carefully follow the directions given by your doctor. This medication works best if you take it at the first sign of an attack. The recommended dose is 1.2 milligrams at the first sign of an attack, followed by 0.6 milligrams one hour later. The maximum recommended dose is 1.8 milligrams taken over 1 hour. Ask your doctor ahead of time about how soon you can repeat treatment with this medication if you have another gout attack.

If you are taking this medication to prevent gout attacks or for pericarditis, ask your doctor about the dose and schedule you should follow. Carefully follow your doctor’s directions.

If you are taking this medication to prevent attacks of pain caused by familial Mediterranean fever, the usual dose is 1.2 to 2.4 milligrams daily. The total dose may be taken once daily or divided into two doses a day. Your doctor may need to adjust your dose to control your symptoms or if you have side effects.

The dosage is based on your medical condition, other drugs/foods you may be taking, and your response to treatment. To reduce your risk for serious side effects, do not increase your dose, take it more frequently, or take it for a longer time than directed by your doctor. Serious side effects may occur even at the usual prescribed doses.

If your doctor directs you to take colchicine regularly, use it regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time(s) each day.

Signs of infection (fever, chills, persistent sore throat)


Before you start to take this prescribed drug, you must disclose your full medical history to your doctor, especially any history of liver problems, kidney problems, or recent infections. Certain conditions may significantly impact how your system will respond to Colcrys.

Further, you must also talk to your doctor about all the prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, supplements, or herbal products you are taking. This is the reason that certain products may have drug interactions with alkaloids.

Remember that it is also necessary to look out for an allergic reaction while on this treatment. Avoid taking Colcrys if you have a known allergy to its active ingredient or any inactive ingredients that each tablet may contain. Signs of hypersensitivity to be watchful for are severe dizziness, swelling of the face and neck, hives or itchiness, red patches on the skin, and breathing trouble. If this happens, you must discontinue medication and seek emergency medical help.
