Most homeopathic drugs are classified as over-the-counter (OTC) by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The labels must contain the word homeopathic, the manufacturer's name, one way the drug can be used, instructions for safety, the active ingredient, and dilution information. There are some homeopathic drugs that are only available by prescription if they purport to treat a severe disease like cancer.
