Hello I am in the middle of an acute gout attack for the last 36 hours. I have taken 3 500microgram Colchicine tablets 14 hours ago (2 to start then 1 an hour later) but have not seen any relief at all yet, in fact it feels worse. Should I take more colchicine or ibuprofen? I'm not taking any other medication or supplements but have had some apple cider vinegar drinks to see if it would help.
For quick relief in the mist of an acute attack, you might want to see a doctor for a weeks worth of prednisone treatment. I'll had relief within 24 hours both times I've done this, but it may vary between individuals.
