Is There a Lawsuit Against Tylenol For Autism?
Tylenol autism lawsuits are in the very early stages. Roberts Wilson, P.A. is currently accepting cases against these and other negligent drug manufacturers. We help parents who used both name-brand and generic versions of acetaminophen products.
Who Is Being Sued in Acetaminophen Autism Lawsuits?
Lawsuits involving the name brand Tylenol will primarily be against Johnson & Johnson, the parent company of McNeil Consumer Products Co. However, any manufacturer of generic acetaminophen medications may be held liable for harm caused by their products.
Common brands containing acetaminophen include:
- Advil Dual Action with Acetaminophen
- Store Brands (i.e. CVS Health store brand, Walmart’s Equate store brand, Target’s up&up store brand, etc.)
Is There a Link Between Acetaminophen and Autism?
Multiple peer-reviewed studies have found that the likelihood of autism in children is increased after exposure to acetaminophen during pregnancy.
Researchers from Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health analyzed data from the Boston Birth Cohort (a long-term study of pregnancy and child development). In the 2019 study, acetaminophen levels were measured in umbilical cord blood samples. From these samples, it was found that, on average, 6.6% of children in the study were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder by the time they were 8.9 years old.
In the study, the amount of acetaminophen and its by-products were classified into thirds, from lowest to highest. Children in the middle third of exposure were twice as likely to develop autism compared to those with the least amount of acetaminophen in utero. Children in the highest exposure group were 3 times more likely to develop autism.
Researchers concluded that the data from the Boston Birth Cohort supports prior studies that link acetaminophen exposure in the womb to autism and warrants the need for continued research.
Is It Safe to Take Acetaminophen During Pregnancy?
Low doses of acetaminophen are generally considered safe for pregnancy. However, prolonged use of acetaminophen during pregnancy has been long warned against by health professionals.
The threshold for an acetaminophen autism ADHD lawsuit is generally 30 days of use.
