About the HomeoLabels.com Database of FDA Homeopathy Information
HomeoLabels.com delivers information on homeopathic remedies from the FDA repository of package labels and product inserts provided to them by manufacturers.
Our Homeopathic Remedy Information
We source our database directly from the FDA’s central repository of product labels and package inserts under the Structured Product Labeling standard. This HL7 data standard has been adopted by the FDA as its primary mechanism for the exchange of formatted health product information.
Information sourced directly from the FDA repository is transformed from machine-portable XML into a human readable web page, rendered with improved formatting and paginated for readability — but it is not otherwise modified with regard to content.
Every product entry includes an effective/last revision date, together with full details of the company providing that information to the FDA.
As per the FDA guidelines on use and interpretation of SPL resources, please take note of the following standard disclaimer:
The drug labels and other drug-specific information on this Web site represent the most recent drug listing information companies have submitted to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). (See 21 CFR part 207.) The drug labeling and other information has been reformatted to make it easier to read but its content has neither been altered nor verified by FDA. The drug labeling on this Web site may not be the labeling on currently distributed products or identical to the labeling that is approved. Most OTC drugs are not reviewed and approved by FDA, however they may be marketed if they comply with applicable regulations and policies described in monographs. Drugs marked “OTC monograph final” or “OTC monograph not final” are not checked for conformance to the monograph. Drugs marked “unapproved medical gas”, “unapproved homeopathic” or “unapproved drug other” on this Web site have not been evaluated by FDA for safety and efficacy and their labeling has not been approved. In addition, FDA is not aware of scientific evidence to support homeopathy as effective.
Regarding homeopathy, please note that this site does is also unaware of any evidence to support homeopathy as effective.
However, our position is this: to the extent that the effects of a homeopathic remedy on a given ailment may be indistinguishable from placebo, to the extent that a placebo is better for that ailment than no treatment at all, and to the extent that a given homeopathic remedy is not actually harmful — which is not always the case — a homeopathic treatment may likewise be better than no treatment at all. The same would be true of any non-harmful substance with a significant placebo effect.
If people are going to use homepathic remedies anyway, whatever their rationale, this site exists to provide information enabling them to educate themselves about the treatments they are using.
The information provided here is intended to support and complement, not replace, the relationship between patient and physician, and all homeopathic remedy information provided here is subject to the Limitations indicated above.
