Posted by Frank Spector | Oct 15, 2014 | 0 Comments

Earlier this summer the FDA notified doctors and caregivers for infants that prescription teething relief medicine should not be used by infants.  Xylocaine  is the most common name that people know about.

This year there were 22 case reports of serious adverse reactions, including death, seizure and brain injury.

The FDA warning is clear.  Heath Care Professionals should not prescribe or recommend this product for teething pain.

The FDA is also urging parents not to use over the counter topical medications for teething pain because some of them can be harmful.
