Did your search results provide information for people about
?contra-indications?? As you probably know 'contraindication' is the
technical term for a condition where the medicine isn't suitable for
you because you have a condition that may make it dangerous. For
example, it may not be advisable to take certain medications if you:
Drink heavily, are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, are
known to be allergic to particular drugs, have a stomach condition,
have kidney or have liver disease.
