Celebrex is included in a category of drugs with blood-thinning properties; this class of pharmaceuticals is called NSAIDS or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs; for this reason, patients who are already taking anti-coagulants or blood thinners should not use Celebrex. In addition, certain factors are considered contra-indications for Celebrex use, and they include the presence of bleeding ulcers or clotting problems in patients since Celebrex is in the category of drugs that may potentially cause blood thinning. Serious potential complications or side effects of Celebrex use include stomach and intestinal bleeding, heart attack, and stroke.
