“The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning against homeopathic teething tablets and gels, recommending that consumers cease letting infants and children use the products because they pose health risks.

“Homeopathic teething tablets and gels are readily available online and in retail stores but have not been proven to offer any health benefits, said the agency.

“‘Teething can be managed without prescription or over-the-counter remedies,’ said Dr. Janet Woodcock, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research director of the FDA.

“Reports of adverse effects after use of homeopathic teething tablets and gels are being investigated by the FDA and more information will be provided to the public once available.

“Parents and guardians are advised to seek medical attention immediately if a child experiences agitation, difficulty urinating, constipation, skin flushing, muscle weakness, excessive sleepiness, lethargy, difficulty breathing or seizures after using a homeopathic teething tablet or gel.”  Source: Family Medicine Smart Brief
