Multiple studies conducted on women who took Tylenol® while pregnant have found links between Tylenol® use and the development of attention-deficit/hyperactive disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in their children.
A 2021 study published in the European Journal of Epidemiology found that Tylenol exposure during pregnancy may increase the likelihood a child will be on the autism spectrum or have symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
The study reviewed data from more than 73,000 mother-child pairs focusing on prenatal and postnatal use of acetaminophen up to 18 months after birth.
According to the findings, researchers indicated children exposed to Tylenol during pregnancy were 19% more likely to have autism spectrum disorders and 21% more likely to have ADHD symptoms compared to non-exposed children.
Children with autism whose mothers used any form of acetaminophen during pregnancy are eligible for major cash settlements. Families might be owed compensation if the child was diagnosed with autism, in an autism program at school, or in an early detection autism program.
