Colchicum is an oft used pain remedy and is on par with Rhus toxicodendron in its utility. What distinguishes Colchicum from R.Tox is its hypersensitive state. It weakens the mind and makes the patient unable to memorize even short sentences. He becomes intolerant to external physical impressions with a tendency to collapse.He cannot tolerate rudeness or bad behavior and suffers from it. It is frequently used in gout.
