Some E-cigarette Users Report Having Seizures

The FDA has received reports that some Electronic Cigarette users, especially adolescents and young adults, are experiencing seizures after using the devices.Seizures and convulsions are known to be potential side effects of nicotine poisoning, the FDA said, and have been reported in the scientific literature related to intentional or accidental ingestion of nicotine-containing e-liquids.

An FDA review of voluntary adverse event reports about e-cigarette products that have been submitted to the agency and to poison control centers identified 35 reported cases of seizure following use of e-cigarettes between 2010 and early 2019.

"While 35 cases may not seem like much compared to the total number of people using e-cigarettes, we are nonetheless concerned by these reported cases," said the agency in its statement. "We also recognize that not all of the cases may be reported. We believe these 35 cases warrant scientific investigation into whether there is, in fact, a connection."

The statement went on to clarify that it still doesn't have evidence of a direct link between e-cigarette use and risk of seizure.

"We're sharing this early information with the public because as a public health agency, it's our job to communicate about potential safety concerns associated with the products we regulate that are under scientific investigation by the agency," the statement said. "This also helps encourage the public to voluntarily report additional adverse events that can better inform our work."u2022eney7485yyWEEEEDD
