    Suggest treatment for knee pain while on colchicine

Posted on Fri, 13 Nov 2015 in Lupus
Question: Started a gout attack in my knee. My doctor gave me colchicine with the dosing of .6/day. I'm up in the middle of the night with pain. I have hydrocodone apap, Motrin 800mg, Advil 200mg and indomethacin 50mg. What's the best medicine to take for relief of pain and works well with colchicine.

Brief Answer:
I think you should take hydrocodone .

Detailed Answer:
Dear Sir,

Thank you for posting your query on HCM.

Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that colchicine is an anti-inflammatory drug so it will be best if we add an opioid analgesic to the same so in my opinion hydrocodone apap should serve this purpose .

Take care.
