celebrex safe to take with hep c?

Regular doc says I need to take celebrex for arthritis pain. I know it is a NSAID so I am scared of it. He thinks it is not a problem with hep c, but he is not a Hep C doc. What is the scoop on it? Any one taking it with Hep C?

I am taking 200mg of Celebrex daily for knee pain and I have Hep C.  My hep doc sees no problem with it.  Sometimes I take two, if I am going to be skiing or riding my bike hard; I'm just hoping that's OK!  My two liver biopsys (5 years apart) have been normal.

Celebrex is a NSAID...  for some it may be ok and others not..largely depends on  the condition of your liver  and other health factors that the prescribing doctor should be aware of ...  here is a past discussion on pain meds.
