Price of generic colchicine 11 cents per 0.6mg tablets.

Price of colcrys $5.00 per 0.6mg tablets.

I have Familial MEditerranean Fever. I need two 0.6mgs per day to avoid DEATH from amyloidosis caused by FMF. I can NOT afford $300.00 per month for colcrys.

Someone needs to look into price fixing.
