Hyland’s Teething Tablets may pose a health risk to children warns the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The agency has received reports of "serious adverse effects" in children and found the tablets contain inconsistent amounts of belladonna, a substance that can cause harm in larger doses. The FDA has also received reports of children consuming more tablets than recommended, because the containers do not have child resistant caps.

Any adverse effects believed to be linked to consumption of these products should be reported to your medical doctor immediately including difficulty breathing, urinating, constipation, excessive sleepiness and more.
