Celebrex (celecoxib) belongs to a class of drugs called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). NSAIDS work by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Celebrex is used to treat pain and inflammation caused by many conditions, such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, and menstrual pain.
Advil (ibuprofen) is also a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Advil is used to reduce fever and treat pain or inflammation caused by many conditions such as headache, toothache, back pain, arthritis, menstrual cramps, or minor injury.
It would be fine to alternate between Advil and Celebrex for relief of your symptoms. Important though that you do not take them together at the same time.
