How Should It Be Stored?

Colchicine should be stored at room temperature and kept protected from light and moisture. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What Should I Do If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your dosage as scheduled, take the missed dose as soon as possible. However, if it is almost time for the next dose, simply skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose of this medication.

Is There a Generic?

Colcrys is not available in generic form (see Generic Colcrys). You may see the unapproved colchicine products referred to as being generic, but this is not an accurate description because unapproved (and therefore unregulated) drugs cannot technically be considered "generics."

Who Makes It?

Colcrys is made by AR Scientific, Inc., for Mutual Pharmaceutical Company, Inc. Unapproved colchicine products are made by various different companies.
