Recent studies have linked the use of Tylenol or generic acetamenophin during the second and third trimesters of pregnancy to an increased risk of autism or attention defecit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). As a result, a class-action lawsuit has been filed.
Tylenol or generic acetamenophin have previously been deemed safe to use during pregnancy. Because of risk factors, other pain relievers such as ibuprofen and aspirin, are not recommended for use during pregnancy. That leaves a heavy emphasis on acetamenophin.
Studies over the past several years have lead to a consensus statement from doctors expressing a belief for an ecercise of caution regarding Tylenol use during pregnancy.
These studies have found an increased occurrance of autism or ADHD in children who had higher levels of aceamenophin in their cord blood, the blood that is found in the umbilical cord that supplied them.
