Colgout is a brand of colchicine, commonly sold in Australia and New Zealand. Just like Colcrys in the United States, everything we discuss about colchicine also applies to Colgout.
There maybe minor differences in dosage between generic colchicine, Colgout, and other branded preparations. However, these are not significant, so the overall advice is:
Colgout may be taken as a preventative during the early stabilization stages of uric acid lowering treatment (allopurinol, febuxostat etc) at the dose of one per day.
When taken as required to combat a gout flare, one tablet to be taken as soon as possible, with a second tablet after one hour if needed.
If gout pain continues after two Colgout, supplement with anti-inflammatories and other analgesics as advised by your doctor or pharmacist.
There is no specific advice on Colgout, so for detailed information, please see the colchicine guidelines.
