Acetaminophen – Over-the-Counter Painkiller

Acetaminophen - Over-the-Counter Painkiller

Is the use of acetaminophen in pregnancy linked to autism and ADHD?

Some research links acetaminophen to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The Cleveland Clinic reports that some studies suggest that taking the drug too much during pregnancy could increase your future child’s risk of developing autism or ADHD.

In a 2018 study in the American Journal of Epidemiology, researchers did a meta-analysis of seven studies involving 132,738 pairs of mothers and children that followed them for periods ranging from three to 11 years, depending on the study. It used questionnaires, interviews, and self-reports on medication use.

That analysis revealed a 20 percent higher risk of autism and a 30 percent higher risk of ADHD for children with prolonged exposure to acetaminophen during fetal development.
