Thanks for that Linda, I suppose I should have asked my doctor the same question. I am trying to reduce my colchicine daily intake to 0.6 mg currently, with such a reduced uric acid level I am not sure as to why I would be suffering any type of flare ups, certainly, however, the duration and intensity of the flare ups is greatly reduced. As I stated before I am not a fan of long term meds of any kind so I am certainly hoping to stop taking colchicine asap.
