Hi, I am Dr Anshul Varshney , I have read your query in detail , I understand your concern.
Yes, Febutaz is a better drug as compared to Zyloric for control of uric acid.
In cases of acute attack of Gout, Colchichine is the drug of choice. However Diclofenac itself can help in pain , swelling of acute gout attack.
This is my personal opinion based on details available here. If you still have any other query, you may please ask me.
