Colgout general information

What is Colgout used for?

Colgout tablets 0.5mg are used to treat symptoms of acute attacks or flares of gout, a condition caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood (hyperuricaemia) forming uric acid crystals, which are deposited in the joints. Colgout tablets 0.5mg help to relieve pain, although they are not analgesics, and also reduce the incidence of recurrent acute gout attacks. However, Colgout tablets 0.5mg do not prevent the progression of acute gout to chronic gouty arthritis, which is when which uric acid crystals that have been deposited in joints cause pain and swelling, with loss of joint mobility. The first line of treatment for gout is generally with an anti-inflammatory medication, either a steroid or a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID). If these treatments are ineffective or cannot be used, then Colgout tablets 0.5mg provide an effective treatment for gout, to reduce inflammation, pain and swelling.

How does Colgout work?

Colgout tablets 0.5mg contain colchicine, an alkaloid phenanthrene derivative originally obtained from the plant Colchicum or Autumn Crocus. Colchicine in Colgout tablets 0.5mg act on inflammatory leucocytes and inhibit the migration of these cells into an inflammatory site, such as inflammation caused by uric acid crystals. Colchicine in Colgout tablets 0.5mg also inhibits the ingestion (phagocytosis) of uric acid crystals by inflammatory cells, which is the way that foreign objects are normally disposed of. This action of colchicine in Colgout tablets 0.5mg reduces the amount of inflammatory chemicals released by these cells and helps break the inflammation cycle.

What does Colgout contain?

Colgout tablets 0.5mg contain the active ingredient colchicine, an alkaloid phenanthrene derivative used to treat acute attacks of gout. They also contain magnesium stearate, lactose, maize starch and povidon.

Treating gout with Colgout

Colgout tablets 0.5mg contain colchicine, an alkaloid phenanthrene derivative that is used to treat attacks of acute gout and to reduce the incidence of recurrent acute gout attacks. Gout is a condition caused by a build up of uric acid in the blood (hyperuricaemia) forming uric acid crystals to be deposited in the joints causing inflammation, pain and swelling. Colchicine in Colgout tablets 0.5mg inhibit the migration of inflammatory leucocytes into an inflammatory site, such as inflammation caused by uric acid crystals and also inhibits ingestion (phagocytosis) of uric acid crystals by these cells, which reduces the amount of inflammatory chemicals released by these cells and helps break the inflammation cycle. Colgout tablets 0.5mg help reduce the pain and discomfort of gout but do not act as a long-term analgesic nor do they prevent the progression of acute gout to chronic gouty arthritis, which is when which uric acid crystals that have been deposited in joints cause chronic pain and swelling, with loss of joint mobility.
