Colchicine is available in .05, .06 and 1 mg colchicine tablets. Individual colchicine dosage is based on your medical condition, medical history and response to therapy, and should be decided by your doctor.
The usual initial dose of colchicine for gout during an acute attack is 1 or 1.2 mg. This initial dose is usually followed by half doses of the gout medication every hour or full doses every two hours until the pain is relieved, then lowered to .5 or .6 mg every two to three hours. The colchicine dosage may be lowered or stopped if the patient experiences gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea.
The colchicine dosage for gout prevention varies depending on individual circumstances and the number of gout attacks experienced, but is usually between .5 mg three times a week to .6 mg daily.
If you are taking colchicine regularly and you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible. But if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take your next dose as usual - don't double dose. Colchicine.ca provides Colchicine images as below:
