Tylenol (acetaminophen) yes: You should not take Ibuprofen with Celebrex as these are both nsaids. This can cause stomach injury and ulceration. Ok to take tylenol (acetaminophen) with either of them. If the meds are not effectively managing the pain then call your surgeon.

Tylenol (acetaminophen): If you are taking Celebrex (a cox-2 nsaid), you wang to avoid any other NSAID (aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen, etc). Tylenol (acetaminophen) would be ok.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) prob. better: If you take celebrex, don't take ibruprofen, they are both nsaids (non-steroidal anti-inflamatory drugs), and should not be taken together, (can lead to stomach irritation, ulcers, and bleeding). Tylenol (acetaminophen) would be preferred for pain if you don't have any liver or other problems limiting it's use.
