Colchicine for the first time


@keith

So the swelling has generally come all the way down but the pain still persists after long walks mainly on the base of my foot and around the top of the toe. As you know I’ve discussed this with two separate rheumatologists and have a professor to see in September. Anyway, I finally decided to give Colchicine a try and took my first 0.5mg tablet this morning to see how my body reacts should I need it.

Anyway, 2 hours into taking it everything seems OK actually. I’m not expecting anything in the way of getting my foot back in shape from the one tablet. It was just to see if I can tolerate the stuff in the event of a flareup prior to starting Febux.

Only side effects I’ve noticed is a dry mouth and throat and an increased urge to drink water, I’ve also noticed a slight headache and a very slight loss of voice. Otherwise things seem OK. I was wondering if these side effects are something you guys experienced the very first time you took Colchicine or every time you took it.
If any side effects did occur during your use, how long did they take to settle down?

Thanks guys.
