Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) are your second line of attack when you want to control gout pain. Gout pain is all about inflammation. Colchicine stops inflammation spreading, then NSAIDs can reduce the inflammation which leaves you pain free in a few hours. See your pharmacist to recommend a combination of NSAIDs and complementary analgesics that will support your colchicine safely. You can be mobile and pain free in minutes with the right combination. See my Gout Treatment reference pages for complete information on NSAIDs as an anti-inflammatory gout cure.
