Acetaminophen, also known as Tylenol, is routinely used during pregnancy but has been linked in numerous studies to an increased risk of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in newborns. One such study from Johns Hopkins University examined data over a 20-year period and discovered that children with the highest levels of acetaminophen in their umbilical cord blood samples were nearly three times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD or ASD.

The Johns Hopkins study analyzed blood samples from 996 mothers and children and found traces of acetaminophen, indicating the drug’s widespread use during pregnancy. This study adds to a growing body of research from the United States and Europe linking the use of acetaminophen during pregnancy to the diagnosis of ADHD and ASD.

Additionally, a NIH study analyzed data from over 64,000 mothers and their children in Denmark and found that prenatal exposure to acetaminophen was associated with a heightened risk of both ADHD and ASD in children.

If you used acetaminophen during pregnancy and your child was later diagnosed with ADHD or ASD, you may be eligible for compensation.

Selinger Law Group is providing free consultations to parents who believe their child’s ADHD or ASD is linked to their prenatal use of acetaminophen.
