<poem>A contraindication is a specific situation in which a drug, procedure, or surgery should not be used because it may be harmful to the person.
There are two types of contraindications:
- Relative contraindication means that caution should be used when two drugs or procedures are used together. (It is acceptable to do so if the benefits outweigh the risk.)
- Absolute contraindication means that event or substance could cause a life-threatening situation. A procedure or medicine that falls under this category should be avoided.
