Thanks for asking, Ilovehistory! Colchicine seems to be working - no pericarditis since I started taking it, so that's a really good thing. As I said, I continue to have some pleurisy-like issues, and occasional chest pain related to that, but it's not usually serious. Did set me back a bit recently when I had to up my prednisone again. But, I'm still hopeful I'll be able to reduce the prednisone soon. Still on imuran, too, so maybe that's the magic 'cocktail' for me! I'll be on the colchicine for 6 months, I guess. We'll see what happens then! Take good care.....
