Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Im sorry to hear about your husband. Actually Lengout contains colchicine which is one of the drugs used to control an acute attack of gout.

It can be used in your husbands case however it should be used with atleast a gap of 12 hours with sigmaxin, as lengout can increase the levels of sigmaxin in the body and that is why it should be used with a time gap in between the two drugs.

But to answer your question, yes lengout can be used to manage an acute attack of gout PROVIDED he has taken sigmaxin atleast 10-12 hours earlier.

Do you have any more questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
