Colchicine

My rheumy doesn't believe that prednisone is a good long term solution to my inflammation and has prescribed Colchicine or Colcry (name brand). I was wondering if anyone else has taken this drug. It is designed to reduce inflammation and is most commonly used in patients with gout.


Any info will be helpful.
