Can you take Celebrex if you are allergic to sulfa drugs?

I have anaphylactic sulfa allergy from Bactrim and Silvadene, but have been taking Celebrex for 2-3 years. Today was the first time anyone brought up me taking it with a sulfa allergy. After doing some research, most sulfa allergies are from antibiotic forms of sulfa and I’ve found several articles listing Celebrex and likely not causing allergic reactions. I have certainly had none or would not still be taking it.

People who have a sulfa allergy can react to some medications that contain sulfa.
Celebrex is a suphonamide so probably should be avoided if you are allergic to sulfa drugs.
