Pregnant Mothers Taking Tylenol® & Having Babies Diagnosed with Autism

Pregnant mothers that took one of these OTC acetaminophen products for pain relief and gave birth to a child diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) may be eligible for potential compensation:

  • Tylenol®;
  • Excedrin®;
  • Nyquil®/Dayquil®;
  • Private-label sold by retailers (such as Walgreens®, CVS®, etc.); or,
  • Didn’t use another type of pain reliever (such as an NSAID etc.)

Details About the Connection Between OTC Acetaminophen & Autism

Using acetaminophen during pregnancy might increase the risk of having a child with autism or one of the ASDs.

There are several notable studies that have associated the use of acetaminophen for pain relief in pregnancy with an elevated risk of ASD, including:

  • A 2018 meta-analysis of seven studies involving 132,178 pairs of mothers and children suggested excessive use of acetaminophen during pregnancy increased the risk of autism by 20%.
  • Another study involving samples of 996 mother-child pairs of umbilical blood found that children with elevated acetaminophen exposure were almost 3.62x more likely to be diagnosed with ASD.

Doctors involved with the study recommended that acetaminophen be used in pregnancy “only when necessary”.

However, estimates propose that up to 70% of pregnant women use some form of acetaminophen during pregnancy.

Details about children diagnosed with autism or one of the autism spectrum disorders

Currently, almost 1 in 59 children suffer the effects of autism.

And, while diagnoses are rising, it’s unclear to tell if the trend is due to an increased diagnosis or an increased occurrence.

Because people with autism are said to be “on the spectrum,” an individual child may exhibit various symptoms that range from mild to severe. 

Some of the most common ASD symptoms include:

  • Patterns of behavior. Many children with autism behave in ways that seem unusual or have unusual interests.
  • Lack of social skills. Children considered “on the spectrum” usually begin exhibiting social symptoms between ages 8 to 10 months old.
  • Communications problems. Between 25% and 30% develop some language skills in infancy but lose them later; while others don’t begin talking until later in life. 

Current treatments for ASD seek to reduce symptoms that interfere with daily functioning and quality of life.

ASD affects each person differently, meaning that people with ASD have unique strengths and challenges and different treatment needs.

Eligible victims are encouraged to request a free, private case evaluation by our experienced legal staff with the potential for compensation and justice.
