New Colchicine Safety Studies
August 31, 2011 by Lynn.
Recent results from a series of colchicine safety studies provide doctors with the first evidence-based dosing guidance for the gout drug when colchicine is prescribed along with certain common drugs, helping to avoid serious and potentially life-threatening drug interactions.
The study results were published in the August issue of Arthritis & Rheumatism, the journal of the American College of Rheumatology. The paper recommends colchicine dose reductions when used with medications such as immunosuppressants, antibiotics, hypertension drugs, anti-fungals and protease inhibitors.
