Gout Overview

Gout (also known as podagra when it involves the big toe)[3] is a medical condition usually characterized by recurrent attacks of acute inflammatory arthritis—a red, tender, hot, swollen joint. The metatarsal-phalangeal joint at the base of the big toe is the most commonly affected (approximately 50% of cases). It may also present as tophi, kidney stones, or urate nephropathy.

What pain medication can I take with Colchicine? Colchicine is not reducing the plain of my gout, only the swelling! ## Hello, Tonypps! How are you? I didn't find any interactions listed between the Colchicine and any of the standard over the counter medications, including Aspirin, Acetaminophen and Naproxen. However, it's always best to double check with your doctor. As listed by the FDA these medications may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation and increased risk of bleeding. Is there anything else I can help with?

I don't have a picture to post for you, due to copyright reasons, but I can tell you that this tablet is manufactured by Northstar Rx and they list it as containing 100mgs of Allopurinol.

Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, joint stiffness and rash. Is there anything else I can help with?

Rumoquin N F Diclofenaco sódico 75mg Metocarbanol 200mg Dexametasona .75mg Excipiente cbp 1 tablet By Marcel Laboratories I suffer from gout so when I get an attack I take one, also heard is good for arthritis, and and of course Rheumatic diseases. My doctor said that is a drug cocktail and there is nothing like that in one pill. Take it if necessary, it won't cure any disease, it only kills and relaxes the pain/area affected. It really works ! ## The ingredients are… Diclofenac, which is classified by the FDA as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory. Methocarbamol, which is a muscle relaxant and Dexamethasone, which is a steroid class medication. Thus, one shouldn't take it without their doctor's approval, because there are some risks associated with it and it may be...

I started on allopurinol 100 mg tab in oct since then have gained 25lbs. Anyone else have this happen? ## Hello, LaceyLu! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. According to the FDA, Allopurinol is used to treat excess uric acid and it has been reported to cause rapid weight gain in a small percentage of people that take it. Other side effects may possibly include sore throat, nausea, dizziness, bruising and joint stiffness. Have you spoken to your doctor? It might not be the right medication for you to take. ## I am on 200 mg a day, I didn't notice until I saw your post, but I have gained 50# in 2 years.

works extremely well for gout or arthritis joint pain and inflammation - suppositories unfortunately work best rather than tabs ## Hello, Django! How are you? Here's hoping you're still unchained! ;-) I'm glad that this medication is working for you. Suppositories tend to be absorbed faster, so the medication works quicker and it also avoids the stomach damage and nausea that can occur from taking oral medications. This medication contains the active ingredient Indomethacin, which is a potent nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory, other side effects listed by the FDA may include headache and increased risk of bleeding. Are there any questions or concerns?
