Drug Mode of Action ::  

Colchicine, a phenanthrene derivative, exerts its effect by reducing the inflammatory response to the deposited urate crystals and also by diminishing phagocytosis in joints. It inhibits lactic acid production by leucocytes, thereby interrupting urate deposition and inflammatory response that sustains the acute gout attack.

Drug Interactions ::

Reversible malabsorption of vitamin B12 may occur because of ileal mucosal function alteration. Response to CNS depressants and sympathomimetics may increase when used concurrently with colchicine. Increased risk of myopathy when used concurrently with simvastatin. Potentially Fatal: With ciclosporin, increased risk of nephrotoxicity and myotoxicity. Risk of colchicine toxicity when used with macrolides.
