Talk to your doctor before taking as they cause renal failure.

They're~~Equivalent: What's stronger is if you took them all at once. But we won't do that, will we? Good...So...Those are approximate equals (assuming that 100mg diclofenac is the sustained release form).But the prices are a bit skewed: for roughly equivalent amounts(30),4.00for ibuprofen, 5.00 meloxicam and 10.00 diclofenac. Also, there is fairly good evidence that anything over 400mg ibuprofen won't do much.
