Maybe I misspoke – thank you for the response. this was my 3rd flare in the previous 6 months.
Treatment for the immediate flare – Cortisone shot and heavy anti-inflam for 5 days
Thereafter – colcrys (1.2mg/day) and 100mg allopurinol for 4-6 months
Thereafter – contorl with correct dosage of allopurinol
My previous treatments have been 1.2mg of colcrys for 2 days, the 4 months seemed extreme. Was wondering if that is a regiment that other shave seen.
