Colchicine: instructions for use 

Colchicine is a substance of alkaloid nature, which significantly reduces the movement of leukocytes to the focus of the inflammatory process. This inhibits the uptake of microcrystalline parts of uric acid by phagocytes. 

Colchicine, which affects uric acid metabolism, is produced on a plant basis. The active ingredient of the same name in the remedy is isolated from the great flintless. This herbaceous plant has long been used in folk medicine to reduce joint pain and prevent the progression of inflammation.

The medicine is produced in tablet form. Tablets are mostly white, but sometimes have a slightly yellowish tinge. Round biconvex tablets have a risk, which simplifies compliance with the prescribed dosage. 

The drug has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects. After taking it, it is possible to quickly stop an acute attack of gout. In addition, the active ingredient delays the deposition of uric acid microcrystals in the tissues. 

Colchicine Generic is able to significantly inhibit cell division, stops miosis, stops degranulation processes in neutrophils. 

The drug stops the development of amyloidosis and reduces the intensity of formation of amyloid structure fibrils. Colchicine tablets are highly effective in terms of stopping and preventing gout attacks of an acute nature. The therapeutic effect develops during the first day of use (in 75% of patients).

Indications for use

Colchicine is prescribed for:

1. In the treatment of gout. This disease is characterized by acute joint pain on the background of impaired uric acid metabolism and urate deposition in tissues. The remedy is shown to relieve pain at exacerbation of the disease and to slow its progression.

2. Amyloidosis, when a complex protein-polysaccharide compound - amyloid - is deposited in the tissues. This leads to malfunction of almost all systems and organs in the body.

3. Inflammatory diseases in otorhinolaryngology and dentistry.

4. Mediterranean fever, which is a hereditary disease associated with amyloid deposition in tissues. The main symptom is recurrent sudden increase in body temperature and severe chills.

5. Phlebitis. In this case, there is inflammation of the venous wall on the background of pathologies of infectious and inflammatory nature.

6. Scleroderma. The disease is characterized by the appearance of scar tissue on the skin and internal organs.

7. Chondrocalcinosis. When this pathology occurs, calcium pyrophosphate crystals are deposited in the articular cartilage and sac, causing painful sensations.

Foods to avoid when taking Colchicine

A diet low in purines can not only prevent the symptoms of diseases associated with elevated levels of uric acid in the blood but also improve overall health and well-being.

Purines are organic compounds that are part of nucleic acids and other important biologically active substances. In the human body, the end product of purine metabolism is uric acid. Disorders of purine metabolism can lead to increased levels of uric acid in the blood - hyperuricemia.

A diet low in purines can not only prevent the symptoms of diseases associated with elevated levels of uric acid in the blood but also improve overall health and well-being.

Gout patients should avoid excessive intake of alcoholic beverages, especially beer. Moderate consumption of wine is not associated with gout exacerbation. Excessive alcohol consumption leads to more frequent gout relapses, even with allopurinol therapy.

Patients should avoid drinks sweetened with high fructose syrup. It is also important to limit natural sweet fruit juices, table sugar, sugary drinks and desserts, and table salt. Grapefruit and grapefruit juice should be avoided when treated with Colchicine.

Foods containing high levels of purines include:

  • red meat and game;
  • certain seafood including: tuna, sardines, anchovies, herring, mussels, cod, scallops, trout, and haddock;
  • meat by-products (kidney, liver, heart, etc.)
  • legumes (peas, lentils, etc.).

It is recommended that these foods be significantly limited or avoided:

  1. High-fat foods.
  2. Alcohol. Beer and whiskey are particularly high in purines. Alcohol also causes dehydration, which makes it difficult for the body to eliminate uric acid.
  3. Sweetened beverages: Fructose is an ingredient in many sweetened beverages, including fruit juices and carbonated drinks, and its excessive consumption is accompanied by a risk of developing gout.

Maintaining a high level of hydration by drinking plenty of fluids can be helpful in preventing gout recurrence. Since the association of gout with the development of atherosclerosis is well known, a diet low in cholesterol and fat is advisable.

Meals for gout should be fractional, the number of meals a day - from 4 to 6, portions of small volume. It is strongly not recommended to use salt in gout, if there is no way to abandon it, its quantity should be reduced. The basis of the diet in gout is lean fish and meat, which are cooked in boiled or baked form, vegetables and fruits. It is obligatory to consume dairy products every day.

Weight loss in obese patients can reduce uric acid levels. However, diets that cause ketosis (such as starvation) should be avoided.

What you should know about brand and generic drug alternates.
Prescription drugs are a costly medical expense, especially for the elderly, those who are chronically ill and those with no or minimal drug coverage on their Health Insurance. However, each state in America has a law that allows pharmacists to substitute less expensive generic drugs for many brand name products. Depending on your prescription needs, your savings could be very significant. Before you talk with your doctor or pharmacist about switching, there are things you should know about generic drugs.

What is the difference between a generic and brand name drug?
Nothing except for the name, packaging, and the price, a generic drug is called by its chemical name; manufacturers assign their own brand name. The generic products have the same ingredients. Standard practice and most state laws require that a generic drug be generically equivalent to its brand name counterpart. That is, it must have the same active ingredients, strength, and dosage form, be it a pill, liquid, or injection. The generic drug also must be therapeutically equivalent. It must be the same drug chemically and have the same medical effect.

Do all drugs have generic equivalents?
No. Some drugs are protected by patents and are supplied by only one company. However, when the patent expires, other manufacturers can produce its generic version. Currently, about half the drugs on the market are available in generic form.

Will my doctor automatically prescribe generic drugs?
It depends on the physician. You can ask your doctor to write a prescription permitting substitution of a generic drug product when appropriate or to define the chemical name for the prescription. This will ensure you are purchasing the correct Mexico drug. Generic products will be as effective and less costly. Or, you can order only brand name products if you wish. Mexico pharmacy offers a wide selection of both Brand Name & Generic Mexico medicine. Our Mexican generic drugs are of the highest quality, selected only from the most reputable manufacturers, and are safe to replace brand name medications costing much more.
