Colcrys (Colchicine) Information
Colchicine tablet is a generic form of medicine, often known by its brand name Colcrys. It is an anti-gout medication, prescribed to relieve the symptoms of pain and swelling in patients with gout or familial Mediterranean fever (FMF).
Chemically, Colchicine is a plant alkaloid derived from the plant colchicum autumnale (meadow saffron) and was first approved by the US FDA in 1961 for the management and prophylaxis of gout, a condition characterized by painful inflammation in joints due to the deposition of uric acid hard crystals.
Colchicine essentially doesn’t completely heal gout and prevent the advancement of acute gout to chronic gouty arthritis. This medication, however, helps in preventing the occurrence of future gout attacks (flare-ups).
Usually, gout arises suddenly with pain and swelling observed in one or more joints of the body, particularly the knee, big toe, or ankle joints. Gout occurs due to a sudden rise in uric acid in the body, leading to its deposition and build up as hard crystals in the joints. This event is accompanied by sensations of lingering pain, inflammation, and swelling. Colchicine tablets, while not able to control the crystallization of uric acid, it can provide symptomatic relief by reducing swelling and inflammation at the site of deposition.
Colchicine also finds application in the management of a familial inflammatory disease, known as Familial Mediterranean fever (FAF). This condition is inherited and shows symptoms like pain in the chest, abdomen, or joints. Colchicine, in this condition too, provides relief to the pain by blocking the formation of certain proteins called amyloid A, whose build-up is the primary cause of pain in patients with FAF.
Colchicine tablets should be administered whole, swallowed with a glass of water, with or without food.
For the treatment of acute gout flare-ups in adults, treatment guidelines suggest intaking 1.2mg (two 0.6mg tablets) at the first sign of flare, followed by a dose of 0.6mg after 1 hour. Dose within 1 hour should not exceed 1.8mg.
For prophylaxis/prevention of future incidence of gout flares in adults, the typical dosage regimen is 0.6mg once (24 hours) or twice a day (12 hours interval). On no counts should the dose be increased from 1.2mg per day.
If taken for pain relief of sudden pain flare-up, wait at least 12 hours before starting the prophylaxis regimen.
This medicine has not been studied in children for treating or preventing gout flares.
When used to treat FAF, 1.2 - 2.4 mg/day is the adult dose, to be taken orally taken as one or two divided doses. When used for children in the range of ages 6–11 years, the usual dosage is 0.9 - 1.8 mg/day, taken in a single dose per day. And for 4–5 years aged children, 0.3–1.8 mg, taken once per day is the preferred dosage routine. This medicine should not be used in children under the age of 3.
If you missed a dose, skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
In case of overdose, immediately seek emergency medical attention, because an overdose of Colchicine can be fatal.
