Other situations in which you might want to take colchicine while you know you could experience an attack at any time:
Say you’re planning a business trip and you realize that an attack right before or during that trip would be extremely inconvenient. Take colchicine a few days before and during the trip.
Say you’re planning to do something which has triggered attacks before such as a bit of trekking. Take colchicine from the day before to the day after.
You get the idea. Just because you don’t need a prophylactic every day doesn’t mean you never need it.

You might also use colchicine if you are afflicted with a persistent attack which indo can’t seem to quell fully or a seemingly unending series of short attacks.
