The issue isn’t whether colchicine technically has any anti-inflammatory effect (as opposed to a pro-anti-inflammatory effect?) but whether 1mg/day does indeed “stop/slow inflammation spreading”. In my experience, it does not do so in a timely fashion.
In any event, it’s obvisouly not going to have the same effect as ibuprofen-type drugs.
