Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredThere is currently no generic version of Celebrex available. Do not confuse Celebrex's ingredient generic name, celecoxib, with a generic version of the drug. The patent for Celebrex prevents companies other than the patent owner from manufacturing a generic version. This patent does not expire until May 2014. It is likely that a generic version will be manufactured by other companies at that time, barring any lawsuits or other legal obstructions by the patent owner.
