While the study found an association between an expectant mother’s use of acetaminophen and the development of ADHD and possibly autism in her child, it can’t prove a definitive cause-and-effect link. Doctors Weigh In. Don’t panic if you’ve taken acetaminophen during pregnancy. For many years, acetaminophen and brand-name versions like Tylenol were considered almost completely safe for use during pregnancy. However, new reports have created a different perspective.
For example, there was a study released in 2016 which linked the use of acetaminophen while pregnant to future behavior problems in children. Acetaminophen Pregnancy Warnings In pregnant rats receiving oral drug at doses up to 0.85 times maximum human daily dose (MHDD) during organogenesis, fetotoxicity and dose-related increases in bone variations (reduced ossification and. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advises pregnant women to consult with a doctor before taking acetaminophen. Acetaminophen remains the only drug generally considered safe for treating pain relief and fever during pregnancy, and an estimated 65 percent of pregnant women in the United States take it at some point. Although generally considered safer than taking ibuprofen or aspirin, the scientific community, in recent years, has come to find that acetaminophen use during pregnancy may pose its own set of health risks to the child.
The study authors theorize that the drug could cause an increase in “oxidative stress” (the difficulty of the body to fight off toxins) during pregnancy, which is thought to raise the risk. Doctors say the concern is overblown. “When the study came out, a lot of headlines suggested that acetaminophen use in pregnancy causes kids to have ADHD, but that’s not at all what the study said,” Kasper says. Instead, the study found that women who reported taking acetaminophen during pregnancy were more likely to say they had a child who demonstrated ADHD-like behavior.
Evidence of a link between attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and the use of acetaminophen during pregnancy has been steadily mounting over the past few years. In the past week, two new studies have joined the ranks, and they point to the potential effects on fertility and language development after acetaminophen use. Overall, the children whose mothers took acetaminophen during pregnancy were about 1.4 times more likely to have behavioral problems and 1.3 times more likely to be hyperactive.
Acetaminophen has been shown to cross the placenta during pregnancy. That means if an expectant mom takes acetaminophen, some of the drug gets into the baby’s system.
