Safety profile

The frequency of adverse reactions is very low and serious adverse reactions are very rarely reported.

Safety is a major issue for the pharmaceutical sector, with EU giving priority to laws and processes on pharmacovigilance. In this context, homeopathic and anthroposophic medicinal products have an important role to play, as they can generally be regarded as safe.

  • A systematic review of the safety of homeopathy concluded that homeopathic medicines in high dilutions, prescribed by trained professionals, are probably safe and unlikely to provoke severe adverse reactions. Adverse effects provoked by homeopathic medicines are generally mild and transient.  
When applied properly, classical homeopathy has few side-effects and the use of high-potencies is free from toxic effects.
