FDA warns against the use of homeopathic teething tablets and gels

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning to parents caring for teething children.

The FDA is asking parents to stop using homeopathic teething tablets and gels. It's investigating reports of adverse reactions caused by the products, including seizures, breathing problems and lethargy.

Homeopathic teething tablets and gels are distributed by CVS, Hyland’s, and possibly others, and are sold in retail stores and online.

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.

A recall has not been issued but CVS has already pulled the products from its shelves.
