FDA: Homeopathic Teething Tablets and Gels May Lead to Seizures
The FDA is warning parents and families that homeopathic teething tablets and gels may pose a risk to infants and children. According to a news release issued by the FDA, medical care should be sought immediately if a child or infant experiences any of the following after using homeopathic teething tablets or gels:
- Difficulty breathing
- Excessive sleepiness
- Muscles weakness
- Skin flushing
- Difficulty urinating
Distributed by CVS and Hyland’s, homeopathic teething gels and tablets are sold in retail stores across the United States and online. The FDA recommends that consumers stop using teething tablets and gels and dispose of any they may have in possession. Likewise, the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research suggest that parents and family members seek advice from their doctor with regards to safe alternatives to the homeopathic teething tablets and gels.
Since a safety alert issued by the FDA in 2010, the agency has been analyzing adverse events, including seizures, associated with homeopathic teething tablets and gels. These products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for safety or efficacy and encourages health care professionals and consumers to report adverse events or other problems related to the use of homeopathic teething tablets or gels to the FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program.
