“The FDA is continuing its scientific investigation to determine if there’s a direct relationship between the use of e-cigarettes and a risk of seizure or other neurological symptoms,” Acting FDA Commissioner Dr. Ned Sharpless said in a statement. In addition to seizures, some people who have used e-cigarettes have reported fainting or tremors.
