In brief: Either of the two

Some people's pain can respond to one nonsteriodal and not another.

In brief: Combine or compare

To the best of my knowledge no studies have been performed in comparing the 2 in treatment of gout.
Cataflam, one of the formulations of diclofenac may be advantageous as it has a fast onset. In my experience, a short term course of oral naprosyn (naproxen) along with topical diclofenac (volraren) works better.
