I've never been on Copaxone but I had my first attack of gout in the year before my 1998 MS diagnosis. It seems to flare up once a year or so despite the 0.6 mg. colchicine that I take daily to break down the uric acid crystals. My dad had gout but not MS.

Thanks for the reply. Did you have your uric acid level checked periodically to see if the colchicine is keeping it down?
