Check out this awesome article from the Lancet about the history of gout and the rise of colchicine! It came into use over 200 years ago! Gout also used to be considered a sign of status - only those who ate more expensive foods and lived more sedentary lifestyles would develop gout.

Once gout was seen often in the population, 18th century doctors began mixing cocktails reputed to stop or prevent gout. Most of them were made with an alcohol base, which we know now must have made the flare-ups worse! Luckily for 18th century gout sufferers, eventually an American colonial doctor added a local plant to his tonic...that plant turned out to contain colchicine.

If your doctor prescribes colchicine for gout, consider buying online at a Canadian pharmacy. You can buy Colcrys for significantly less online than you would pay at an American pharmacy.

Yes, You Can Enjoy Food with Gout

We love this blog post about New York Times writer Frank Bruni's first foray into a barbeque restaurant since his gout diagnosis. It is a true account showing that simply because you have gout, doesn't mean that you can only eat bland foods and no meats. It's about balance, not about skimping.

If you do have more gout flares than you should, talk to your doctor about colchicine, a medication which prevents gout flares and lowers uric acid levels.

Read about Frank Bruni's barbeque experience here.

Big Mountain Drugs is helping the green movement this week by offering a prescription drug coupon for everyone who recycles their unused prescriptions. The coupon code is valid for fifteen dollars off of any prescription, and is available for a week only. All new customers can use the coupon code rx15 to receive the discount on their medications. This coupon is particularly useful for customers who buy daily prescriptions such as generic Plavix and generic Lexapro.

Multiple towns in Louisiana are providing special drop zones for customers to safely dispose of their unused prescription and over the counter medications. When unused medications expire, patients often flush them down the toilet, or dispose of them with their household garbage. What many people do not realize is that the flushed medications can enter the water system. There, they can be ingested by plants and animals, or taint the ground water supply. Be sure to safely dispose of your medications in the proper locations, just like a refrigerator or computer disposal. From there, you can buy your prescriptions with the confidence that you are not unduly affecting your environment.

With the constant turnover in your medicine cabinet, you may be noticing a financial burden. However, there are many ways to save on your medications. Buying generic medications is one of the best ways to save money on your prescription purchases. A generic is a medication that has an expired patent. Generic alternatives to expensive brand name medications such as Lipitor and Advair are chemically and therapeutically the same as the brand-name original, but cost significantly less, as the manufacturer does not have to recoup expensive marketing, research, and development costs. Remember to also use coupons wherever possible. Buying online offers many more buying options, such as generic or brand name, or the availability of coupons.
