Advice

  • Gout flares are often treated with some combination of steroids, NSAIDS (classically, indomethacin), opioids for extreme pain, and colchicine, depending on a patient's age and other risk factors for complications.
  • After the initial flare, patients may benefit from irate-lowering therapies like allopurinol.

Management

Other causes of monoarthritis should be considered if patient does not meet criteria for gout, for example: pseudogout, septic arthritis, reactive arthritis, psoriatic, rheumatoid, or osteoarthritis.
