Q. How is gout treated? After a lot of tests, my Doctor concluded that I have gout. What treatment should I expect? Is gout curable?

A. There are basically three types of treatment for gout arthritis : corticosteroids, anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAID- ibuprofen, diclofenac, naproxen), and medication that lowers uric acid levels, such as allopurinol (Zylopric) or probenecid, also may be prescribed to help prevent a gout attack.

Colchicine is used to treat acute gout attack and usually begins working within few hours of taking it. Low doses of colchicine are also used to prevent attacks. These drugs are recommended for people who have had multiple attacks of gout, kidney stones due to uric acid, or tophi.

The goal of lowering the blood uric acid is to slowly dissolve deposits of uric acid in the joint.
