Andrew,

I agree with Keith. I don’t think I ever read Keith or the website ever saying not to take more than 1 tablet a day. As a matter of fact, I think I’ve read many times Keith’s remedy for Gout Pain Management as taking up to 4 Colchicine tablets in a day (correct me if I’m wrong Keith). The remedy was to take 2 tablets immediately, then take 2 more later if pain doesn’t subside.

I think people may have been talking about taking Colchicine as a prophlactic in which 1 tablet a day may be sufficient. The dose I take occasionally is 0.6 mgs, but as I’ve discussed many times before, Colchicine in the US is quite expensive. I pay a $50 co-pay and my insurance is billed $600 for a 3 month supply. That’s ridiculous in my opinion, so I don’t take it very often.
