Depends: Unless you have been instructed by your physician to not take sertraline for some reason, then there is no need for a waiting period. Using these 2 medications at the same time may increase one's risk of bleeding or their sodium balance. That being said, these medications are commonly used together without adverse effect. Always advise your prescribers which medications you are taking.

Technically: Technically there is an interaction between nsaids and zoloft. Celebrex (celecoxib) is safe to take with it though.
