In brief: Celebrex/lithium

Some lithium retention can occur, but not clinically significant if your lithium level is therapeutic and your kidneys are functioning well.

In brief: Yes

You need to have your levels monitored regularly for risk of toxicity.
That is because renal excretion of lithium can be decreased with celebrex (celecoxib).
