I am taking Colcrys and want to know if I can take my over

Resolved Question:

I am taking Colcrys and want to know if I can take my over the counter (Walmart brand) Motrin with it? Also would it be ok to take a 5 hour energy later today while on this Rx?

You can take Colcrys (colchicine) and Motrin (ibuprofen) together as they do not interact with each other. However, both can cause stomach upset, so you might take food for milk with them (especially with the ibuprofen).

how about 5 hour energy?
Expert:  Susan Peacock RPh replied 6 years ago.
I don't see any problem with the energy drink, it primarily contains amino acids (the building blocks of proteins) and vitamins in reasonable amounts.

But as with most things, don't over do it.

All the best,
