Celebrex is a COX-2 inhibitor. This is in the classification of Nsaids but the mechanics behind it is a bit different then regular Nsaids such as Advil, Motrin etc. Uc'ers need to avoid Nsaids because it can promote intestinal bleeding. However, some can use varying dosages of either Nsaids or Celebrex. I am on an as needed dosing of Celebrex for my arthritis. I can not take it every day or it makes my Uc act up a bit.
