From this study (3 months ago):
I have such arthritis pain. Could one of my medicines make my pain worse?
From this study (2 years ago):
I took colchicine twice a day for over 2 years as a remedy for gout to mixed success. Since stopping colchicine I have developed hypertension, am now taking ramipril 10mg, amlodipine 10mg and doxisosin 8mg, and my BP remains at approx 160/90. I feel these meds are having no effect. Please advise.
From this study (2 years ago):
I was given an overdose of colchicine due to a pharmacy mistake on December 20, 2011...I took 9 pills .6 mg within 12 hrs...I became violently ill...vomitting for 48 hours...diarrhea for 22 days...constant nausea since that date...stomach pains n cramps...I have 4 stents in my heart and I am having problems with chest pain and elevated blood pressure, that was under control until I took colchicine...I want to know if there are any long term cardiac effects from this overdose of colchicine.
