Colcrys (Colchicine) is a beta-tubulin interactor. It is a prescription medication used mainly in gout to treat an acute attack or to prevent an attack while starting uric acid-lowering therapy. Gout is a form of arthritis that occurs when too much uric acid builds up in the body because the body is unable to get rid of it quickly enough. Colchicine works by reducing the swelling, inflammation, and pain that occurs when uric acid crystals form in the joints. Colchicine is not a cure for gouty arthritis or Behcets syndrome, and it will not prevent these diseases from progressing. This medication should not be used as a routine pain medication for other conditions. Other options for gout treatment may include: allopurinol, febuxostat.

Oral colchicine (Colcrys) in the treatment and prophylaxis of gout - 2010, Lily P. H. Yang, found that “the recommended dosage of Colcrys (1.2 mg at the first sign of the flare, followed by 0.6 mg in 1 hour) was significantly more effective than placebo in treating acute gout flare, as assessed by the proportion of patients experiencing a =50% reduction in pain within 24 hours of initiating treatment."
