How does Colcrys treat gout?

A Answers (1)

  • AStacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answered
    Colcrys relieves some of the pain of gout, a severe form of arthritis caused by high uric acid levels in the joints, by suppressing cells that cause inflammation. That's also how it prevents gout attacks. Colcrys doesn't necessarily affect the uric acid levels. Colcrys is only approved to treat gout in people over 16 years of age.
