My thought is that Celebrex is an NSAID and most GI's would not recommend taking Celebrex, if at all possible. NSAID's can cause stomach & intestinal bleeding so for Crohn's patients its best to stay away from taking NSAID's.
Having said that, my GI has given me the OK to take Asprin and/or Ibuprophen (NSAID's) as needed so long as I don't take too much of it over a long period of time.
My suggestion would be to ask your GI about it. Celebrex is for Arthritis and there are other drugs that are more Crohn's-friendly that'll help with Arthritis AND Crohn's symptoms at the same time.
