Reply To: First Gout Attack – Is Colchicine or Naproxen best?

John Harding

Hi, I was prescribed 500 micro grams of colchicine twice a day but after 5 days my doctor switched it to Naproxen 500mg twice a day and told me not to take colchicine with the naproxen.
I have little pain when my foot is not in use, but if I try to do too much (walk) it hurts. The swelling is still there but I think/hope it is slowly getting better!
I have found swimming to be ok. I guess in the next attack I will blitz it in the first day or two with colchicine and Naproxen!!! Thanks for you reply. John
