FDA warns against the use of homeopathic teething tablets and gels

Melissa De La Mora

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers that homeopathic teething tablets and gels may pose a risk to infants and children. The FDA recommends that consumers stop using these products and dispose of any in their possession.

The FDA is currently testing samples of the products and analyzing reports linking them to seizures in infants and children since 2010. The organization warns that "consumers should seek medical care immediately if their child experiences seizures, difficulty breathing, lethargy, excessive sleepiness, muscle weakness, skin flushing, constipation, difficulty urinating, or agitation after using homeopathic teething tablets or gels."
