URICOL PLUS is a multifunctional balanced fomnulation combining three active
ingredients with antigout, urinary antispasmodic and urate antilithic effects.
Cok:hicine is a potent antigout that relieves the manifestations of acute gouty
arthritis. Colchicine acts by Inhibiting the formation and release of the glycoprotein that causes joint pain and inflammation during phagocytosis of urate crystals. Colchicine is also effective in decreasing the frequency and severity of acute attacks when taken prophylactically in chronic gout. Khellin, the second ingredient in URICOL PLUS, is a powertul antispasmodic. Khellin relieves urinary smooth muscle spasm and hypermotility associated with the irritation due to urate crystals. Piperazine citrate, the third ingredient in URICOL PLUS, adjusts the pH of urine to the appropriate value for dissolution and prevention of the deposition of urate crystals. These properties demonstrate the superiority of URICOL PLUS as potent antigout with high efficacy in treatment of urinary tract spasm and prevention of urate lithiasis. Also, the formulation of URICOL PLUS in effervescent granules makes its
taste pleasant and palatable and its absorption rapid with fast onset of action.
