Colchicine, sold under the brand names Colcrys and Mitigare, is a medication commonly used to treat a gout attack. It works by inhibiting the inflammatory response in the body, specifically targeting processes involving white blood cells. By doing so, colchicine helps reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation.

The typical dosage is 0.6 mg taken twice daily, administered until gout symptoms subside. Colchicine may cause minor side effects, such as nausea, stomach pain, or diarrhea.
