Homeopathic teething tablets have been tied to serious injuries, including seizures and deaths, prompting U.S. health regulators to warn against their use. Hyland’s Homeopathic and Raritan Pharmaceuticals have each announced recalls for homeopathic teething remedies after their products were found to contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna, a potentially toxic ingredient.
The nationwide law firm of Bernstein Liebhard LLP is investigating teething tablet injuries and deaths linked to homeopathic drugs sold by Hyland’s and other companies. If your child suffered seizures or other life-threatening complications following ingestion of homeopathic teething tablets or gels, please call (888) 994-5118 to learn more about your legal rights.
Since September 2016, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued several teething tablet warnings, after an agency review implicated homeopathic products in at least 10 deaths and hundreds of serious injuries.
According to the FDA, many of the teething tablet injury reports logged with its database are consistent with belladonna poisoning. Also known as Deadly Nightshade, belladonna is a plant used in homeopathy for its sedative effects. However, exposure to excessive amounts may lead to seizures and other serious adverse events. Symptoms of belladonna poisoning in infants and children may include:
Parents and caregivers should seek medical care immediately if their child experiences any of these symptoms following ingestion of homeopathic teething tablets or gels.
You may be entitled to file a lawsuit for teething tablet injuries that occurred following ingestion of a homeopathic product. To learn more, please call Bernstein Liebhard LLP at (888) 994-5118 to obtain a free review of your potential claim.
