Daily prescription medication prices can be expensive for people without coupons or discounts. Colcrys is one of those prescription medications that could be hard for some people to afford. Colcrys is prescribed for gout flares in adults or Familial Mediterranean Fever.

The Rx Advocates help people afford their medications by connecting them with patient assistance programs. Our goal is to help people get their monthly prescription medications at a reasonable rate so they can stay healthy. Patients should not have to decide between paying a bill or getting their medications.

Frequently Asked Questions

Colcrys (colchicine) is used to treat gout flares and familial Mediterranean fever. 

Gout is a type of arthritis where uric acid accumulates in the joints. It usually affects the big toe, but can occur in any joint. The affected joint may swell, feel hot, and be painful. There can be lingering pain for days or weeks. As gout progresses patients may not be able to move their joints normally.

Gout happens when uric acid in the blood forms intro urate crystals in a joint. Uric acid normally is dissolved in the bloodstream and exits the body via the kidneys in urine. If the body produces too much uric acid, or the kidneys do not get rid of enough, it builds up and creates urate crystals.

There are some medical conditions that can cause high levels of uric acid. These conditions include untreated high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, and heart and kidney disease. A diet high in red meat and shellfish can increase uric acid levels. Drinking lots of beverages sweetened with fructose and alcoholic beverages also increases uric acid levels in the blood.

Familial Mediterranean Fever is an autoinflammatory disorder. It causes painful inflammation of joints, lungs, and abdomen. It is a genetic disorder that most often occurs in those whose families are from the Mediterranean areas. There is no cure for this disorder, but it can be controlled with medical treatment.

Familial Mediterranean Fever is usually diagnosed in childhood. Attacks can last one to three days, but arthritic attacks can last for weeks or months. The symptoms can include a fever, achy swollen joints, a red rash on the lower legs and abdominal and chest pain.

Colcrys has many potential drug-drug interactions. Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all medications you are taking before starting Colcrys.

There are FDA approved alternatives to treat bacterial conjunctivitis, they include:

As of August 2021, the average retail cost of Colcrys is $262.93.

The cost of Colcrys can vary based on where the patient lives, which pharmacy is used, and the patient’s insurance. If the patient does not have insurance, they will have to pay the retail price. 

Colcrys comes in a tablet form in a .6mg dose. It can be taken with or without food. Patients should follow the instructions from their doctor carefully. The directions for use are different for gout than for Familial Mediterranean Fever.

Prescription coupons and patient assistance programs are very different things. At The Rx Advocates, we do not offer coupons. We would like to explain how a coupon works. When a patient is prescribed Colcrys they may do an internet search for a coupon.

This is not surprising as prescriptions can be expensive. Some patients cannot continue to take the medication if they do not find a lower price. Colcrys is a medication that some people may need for their entire life. However, coupons do not always have the highest amount of savings available.

A Colcrys coupon may save some money, but patients may still have a large out-of-pocket cost. Even with a coupon, some patients cannot afford to get their Colcrys. Often coupons may only be used one time. Some coupons have great deals for the first couple of months of using the prescription, but then patients have to pay the full price in the following months.
