In brief: Generally fewer
Celebrex (celecoxib) is a cox-2 specific nsaid.
As such, it reduces pain and inflammation, with far fewer side effects than non cox-2 specific agents. Less GI upset, fewer bleeding issues, etc. In general, the safest NSAID out there.

In brief: Many but minor
Many but minor-most commonly constipation.
Celebrex (celecoxib) is a sulfa derivative and may cross react with other sulfa allergies, in some cases violently; may cause increased BP esp in combination with ace inhibitors; some cases of steven-johnson syndrome with shedding of skin, but very rare; a very slight increase in GI events, rare. Doesn't thin blood, higher chance of mi or stroke, rarely.
