Are there any safety hazards involved when using homeopathic medicines?

The small doses used in homeopathic medicines make them extremely safe, also for infants, pregnant women or the aged. They do not have the side effects associated with many conventional prescription drugs, which is one of the reasons for the popularity of homeopathy among patients.

The vast majority of homeopathic medicines are officially recognized as ‘over-the-counter (OTC) medicines’ and thus any person can order them without a prescription. Because they are recognized as medicinal products, their manufacture is regulated by the National Drug Regulatory Agencies to guarantee their quality and safety.
