In layman’s terms, colchicine to block inflammation. Naproxen to fight any inflammation that gets through (usually, because you took the colchicine too late). Medically (ish), naproxen blocks enzymes. But, colchicine blocks immune cell replication. Entirely different battle scenarios.

It reinforces what I learned a long time ago. Never ask a doctor about pain control. Hospital nurses know what works.

And this, my friends, is the kind of information that keeps me and others coming back. My wife tells me I should try and learn at least one new thing every day. This suffices that requirement. Thanks Keith
