Details about the connection between OTC acetaminophen and autism

A 2021 study examining medical records of more than 73,000 mother-child pairs across Europe found that kids exposed to OTC acetaminophen while in the womb were 19% more likely to be diagnosed with autism or one of the autism spectrum disorders (ASD) than those who weren’t.

The results of this survey conclude that using acetaminophen during pregnancy might have increased the victim’s risk of having a child with autism.

There are several studies that have been able to associate the use of acetaminophen in pregnancy with an increased risk of ASD, including:

In fact, doctors involved with the study recommend that acetaminophen be used in pregnancy “only when necessary”--but, there is the suggestion that almost 70% of pregnant women use some OTC acetaminophen products throughout the course of a pregnancy.

While the U.S. Food & Drug Administration has placed acetaminophen in Pregnancy Category B–a class reserved for drugs that have not shown a fetal risk–the bottom line is that:

  • Pregnancy Category B drugs have not been subject to controlled studies in pregnant women;
  • Pregnancy Category B drugs have been shown to have adverse effects in animal reproduction studies that were not confirmed in controlled studies of women; and,
  • There are currently no pain relievers included in Pregnancy Risk Category A, the class of drugs reserved for medications that have been deemed completely “safe.”

ASD currently affects about 1 in 59 children–and, while the incidence is rising, it’s unclear if this results from increased diagnosis or increased occurrence.

An individual child with autism that is often referred to as “on the spectrum” may exhibit various symptoms that range from mild to moderate to severe. 

Some of the most common ASD symptoms include:

  • Lack of social skills. Children with autism have difficulty interacting with others–those that are considered “on the spectrum” usually begin exhibiting social symptoms between ages 8 to 10 months old.
  • Communications problems. About 40% of kids with autism don’t talk at all; between 25% and 30% develop some language skills in infancy but lose them later; while others don’t begin talking until later in life. 
  • Patterns of behavior. Many children with autism behave in ways that seem unusual or have unusual interests.

Current treatments for autism attempt to reduce symptoms that interfere with daily functioning and quality of life–and because ASD affects each person differently, people with ASD have unique strengths and challenges and different treatment needs.

Treatment plans usually involve multiple professionals and are catered to the individual–which could mean that treatment of a child with autism or an autism spectrum disorder can be lifelong and expensive.

The team at Shield Justice Team encourages mothers that took Tylenol® or similar OTC acetaminophen products for pain relief during pregnancy and gave birth to a child diagnosed with autism to request a free, private case evaluation for potential compensation.
