What is Colcrys?
Colcrys is a medicine that helps prevent or treat gout attacks. This medicine also helps treat a genetic condition called Familial Mediterranean fever in adults and children aged at least 4 years.
Colcrys (colchicine) reduces swelling and pain by changing how the body reacts to uric acid crystals.
Colcrys is not a cure for Behcet’s syndrome or gouty arthritis, and it will not stop them from getting worse. Colcrys should not be used as a daily pain reliever for any other conditions.

Taking certain drugs together with Colcrys can cause a serious drug interaction. Tell your healthcare provider about the medications you are taking now and if you start or stop taking any.
Your blood may need to be tested on a regular basis if you take Colcrys over a long time.
