    What Is Tylenol?

    Tylenol (generic name: acetaminophen) is one of the most common over-the-counter medications used to lower body temperature when having a fever and to alleviate aches and pains from headaches, muscle pain, toothache, and menstrual cramps.

    Tylenol is available in different forms such as caplet and suspension and can be taken with or without food.

    While acetaminophen relieves pain and lowers fever and is available almost everywhere, it is important to follow the doctor’s orders and the recommended dosage, as taking too much acetaminophen can be dangerous.

    Additionally, Tylenol should not be taken at the same with other medications because of possible drug interactions.

    If you are taking any other medications, make sure to discuss proper Tylenol use with your doctor or pharmacist and to read the instructions and warnings on the label.

    How Is Tylenol Linked To ADHD And Autism?

    Tylenol Autism lawsuit 2022 report on ADHD link by Lawsuit Informer

    The use of Tylenol, or other brands of acetaminophen during pregnancy, has been linked to an increased risk of children being born with neurological disorders or developing attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

    2018 study published in The Cleveland Clinic, a meta-analysis of studies examining the association between acetaminophen use and fetal development and adverse neurodevelopmental outcomes.

    The study found that the risk for ADHD increased by 30% and a 20% higher risk of autism who had prolonged exposure when pregnant women took acetaminophen (Tylenol) too often during pregnancy.

    Acetaminophen can cross the human placental barrier, a system that plays an essential role in fetal development and health. And the study also found that exposure to acetaminophen during pregnancy has been reported to cause neurodevelopmental disorders and impairment in humans.

    In a separate study, funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality, exposure to acetaminophen use during pregnancy, while in the womb, may put a child at greater risk for later developing attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder or autism spectrum disorder.

    Tylenol Autism lawsuit 2022 studies on ADHD link by Lawsuit Informer

    The study revealed that children exposed to both prenatal and postnatal acetaminophen had an increased risk of developing behavioral problems at age 11, compared to those exposed only after birth. Specifically, these children were more likely to exhibit internalizing behaviors (such as depression or anxiety) and externalizing behaviors (like aggression or rule-breaking). Additionally, they were more likely to report lower self-esteem and school achievement.

    This finding suggests that the use of the medication, during both prenatal acetaminophen exposure and postnatal periods, may have an effect on a child’s behavioral health.

    However, further research is needed to better understand this link and its implications for early childhood development. Additionally, it is important to note that the study did not prove that acetaminophen exposure causes these behavioral problems, only that there is an association between the two.

    Researchers in Denmark and Spain studied data from over 65,000 mothers and their children. The study found that acetaminophen exposure was associated with a higher risk of Autism Spectrum Disorder and Complex Developmental Disorder in a more recent study.

    The new study builds upon decades of careful scientific research conducted on birth cohorts and mother-child pairs

    How Is Johnson & Johnson Involved In The Tylenol Autism Lawsuit?

    McNeil Consumer Products Co. is a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, one of the largest and most well-known healthcare and medical products companies in the world. McNeil manufactures Tylenol, a brand of acetaminophen that is used to treat pain and fever.

    The Tylenol autism lawsuits allege:

    a. that taking Tylenol when they were pregnant was the cause of their child developing ADHD or autism spectrum disorder


    b. the company (McNeil and Johnson & Johnson) knew or should have known about the risks 


    c. and that they failed to update the medication’s product label to warn the public about the potential health risks when taking the medication

    Because of this, thousands of children are now at risk for something that could have been prevented.

    The litigation was filed in federal court and seeks to hold McNeil and Johnson & Johnson accountable for their actions.
