What is better for my body to take daily up to 3 times a day paracetamol, ibuprofen or indomethacin for strong pain that keeps coming back?

Probably ibuprofen. Nsaid medicines (non-steroidal anti-inflammatories) all come with risks. I want to make sure you are receiving guidance on how to take these medicines from your physician. All nsaids can cause gastritis (inflamed lining of stomach), peptic ulcers, and kidney dysfunction. They can also increase your risk of bleeding. Read more...
What kind of pain? Do not take medication unless assessed by your doctor. You asked about taking certain number of medicines a day which depends on half lives of medicines, i.e. During each half life, blood level drops to half, then to 1/4, 1/8, & so on. Ibuprofen: half-life: 2.2-2.4h , paracetamol: 2 hours, indomethacin: 4.5 hours. You can take more tablets if the half life is less. Please your doctor. Read more...

Taking ibuprofen 600 for tooth surgery. Having the beginning of gout attack. Can I take my indomethacin 50mg this morning and after 4 take ibuprofen?

A better idea if the gout is not controlled by NSAIDs would not be to take more NSAIDs, but rather to contact your pcp about other possible medications to try (colchicine being one example).
