However, recently she's been taking celebrex for arthritis, can she still take excedrin migraine?

The Excedrin Migraine label says, "Ask a doctor or pharmacist before use if you are taking a prescription drug for arthritis." That would include Celebrex.
The prescribing information for Celebrex has a warning that taking aspirin while taking Celebrex can increase the risk of GI bleeding. Excedrin Migraine contains aspirin.
These issues must be taken into account as well as all other medications your wife may be taking, both prescription and over-the-counter, and all of her health issues. This question can really only be safely answered by her doctor.
Please, check this out with her doctor?
Thanks Teri for your comment. We will check with her doctor.
You're very welcome, Jim.
I take Celebrex for Arthritis. Becaus of that, my doctor doesn't want me to take anything with aspirin, ibuprofen, or any other NSAID beyond the baby apririn I take for my heart. But, your wife's doctor might feel differently.
