@Keith – thanks for your response mate.
I think there’s a slight confusion. I was just asking about your three stage prevention plan. I’ll start a separate thread for us to discuss one for me.
My question about colchicine was referring to an earlier thread here where you mentioned you take two tablets and no more then 1mg per day because you’ve never needed to. My question was how many hours apart do you take the second tablet. Is it as you state here (http://www.goutpal.com/gout-treatment/stop-gout/gout-attack/acute-gout-attack/) which mentions 1 tablet then a second 2 hours later or did you take 1 on the first sign of an attack and the other 12 hours later?
The reason I was initially asking was to see how many hours is a safe buffer for a first timer like me between taking the second tablet should I get an accute attack 🙂
