IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

  • COLCRYS is contraindicated in patients with renal or hepatic impairment who are currently prescribed P-gp inhibitors or strong inhibitors of CYP3A4. In these patients, life-threatening and fatal colchicine toxicity has been reported with colchicine taken in therapeutic doses. Dose adjustments of COLCRYS may be required when co-administered with P-gp or CYP3A4 inhibitors in patients with normal renal and hepatic function.

  • Fatal overdoses, both accidental and intentional, have been reported in adults and children who have ingested colchicine. Keep COLCRYS out of the reach of children.

  • Blood dyscrasias such as myelosuppression, leukopenia, granulocytopenia, thrombocytopenia, pancytopenia, and aplastic anemia have been reported in patients taking colchicine at therapeutic doses.

  • Colchicine-induced neuromuscular toxicity and rhabdomyolysis have been reported with chronic treatment in therapeutic doses, especially when colchicine is prescribed in combination with other drugs known to cause this effect. Patients with renal dysfunction and elderly patients, even those with normal renal and hepatic function, are at increased risk.

  • Monitor for toxicity and if present consider temporary interruption or discontinuation of colchicine.

  • The most common adverse reactions in clinical trials were diarrhea (23%) and pharyngolaryngeal pain (3%).
