Homeopathic medicines are regulated by the FDA as a type of over the counter (OTC) drug. Homeopathic manufacturers are subject to inspection by FDA and state inspectors for quality and compliance with drug regulations. However, FDA does not review or approve indications found on the labels, which are based on traditional homeopathic practice.
