I know the fruit and juice can cause problems but I'm curious about the essential oil. I use an all natural body cream that has grapefruit essential oil in it. Should I stop using it?

Hello, Anissa! How are you?

No, that shouldn't affect your medication. It is the way the grapefruit juice acts on various digestive enzymes and liver enzymes that causes reduced efficacy of some medications.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Colchicine as possibly including nausea, diarrhea, stomach pain and stomach cramping.

Is there anything else I can help with?
