In brief: Probably naproxen

Naproxen has been used for many years to treat acute episodes of gout-colcichine has been used longer but has more side effects if pushed.
Celebrex (celecoxib) is an N SAID too but used more for having less gastrointestinal side effects. So the person who knows best with your history is the prescribing. Doctor.
