Frequently Asked Questions

Does Tylenol cause autism?

Possibly, yes. Tylenol linked to autism has been reported in multiple studies.

Notably, researchers from Johns Hopkins found that children with high levels of acetaminophen (the active ingredient in Tylenol) in their umbilical cord blood were nearly 4 times more likely to be diagnosed with autism and nearly 3 times more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD.

Is there a lawsuit against Tylenol?

Yes, hundreds of product liability lawsuits have been filed against the companies that manufactured and distributed Tylenol and generic versions of the drug (acetaminophen).

These lawsuits allege that the companies failed to warn consumers that use of the over-the-counter pain medication during pregnancy may cause autism and/or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Can you take Tylenol when pregnant?

Harvard Medical School recommends that pregnant women “[a]void acetaminophen during pregnancy when possible.” Prenatal exposure to acetaminophen has been linked to autism and ADHD in children.

Harvard suggests that pregnant women talk to a health professional about taking Tylenol and minimize use of the drug if they do decide to take it.

When will the Tylenol autism lawsuit be settled?

A settlement conference in the Tylenol autism lawsuit was scheduled for January 4, 2024. However, because of developments in the case, the hearing never took place.

As we wait to see what happens, it’s not too late to file a Tylenol lawsuit and pursue settlement compensation. Attorneys handling acetaminophen autism cases fight for quick settlements, so families get the compensation they need and deserve as soon as possible.

What proof do you need for Tylenol lawsuit?

A Tylenol lawyer can help you gather evidence to establish a connection between Tylenol use during pregnancy and your child’s autism and/or attention deficit activity disorder.

This proof may include:

  • Doctor’s notes indicating Tylenol use during pregnancy
  • Medical records and bills related to your child’s diagnosis
  • Receipts for Tylenol purchases

Your legal team can advise on specific evidence that may be needed in your case.

Is there a Tylenol class action lawsuit?

Yes. A multidistrict litigation (MDL) action, which is similar to a class action lawsuit, has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

In December 2023, Judge Denise Cote ruled that the plaintiffs in these cases lacked sufficient scientific evidence linking Tylenol usage during pregnancy to their children’s neurological disorders, but that ruling is being appealed.

Regardless, families continue to file Tylenol lawsuits to hold drug companies accountable for the harm they’ve caused and to seek the compensation they deserve.
