Herbal remedy investigation

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA is investigating the toxic potential of Chinese herbal remedy Jin Bu Haun, which is used as a sedative and analgesic, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Dec. 3 Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. CDC noted that in July and August 1993, three women in Los Angeles developed acute hepatitis after ingesting Jin Bu Huan, which has previously been associated with the onset of acute hepatitis. CDC recommended in the Aug. 27 MMWR that traditional ethnic remedies (including Jin Bu Huan) should-be sold in child-proof packaging due to their toxic potential. CDC also had reported that in 1993 three children in Colorado experienced central nervous system and respiratory depression leading to life-threatening bradycardia after an unintentional overdose of Jin Bu Huan.
