When a woman is pregnant they are incredibly limited on what medication they can safely take for pain relief, mainly only being able to take acetaminophen. This may be something that pregnant women should think twice about. According to a study in 2021 from Johns Hopkins University, there may be a correlation between Tylenol use during pregnancy leading to autism in children when they’re born.
Matt Dolman explains that causes of autism spectrum disorder, a neurological disorder that affects learning, emotional regulation, and social awareness, aren’t very clear apart from genetics. However, this new study shows a strong change of possible causation.
Stan Gipe also elaborates that pharmaceutical companies should be testing and have warning labels to give pregnant individuals the chance to make informed decisions if acetaminophen does have these types of side effects. That a higher dose of Tylenol raises the chances that your child may be born with autism.
Whether these studies continue to show furthered causation or proof, these studies have been replicated multiple times with similar results. There may not be concrete evidence yet, but there is cause for mothers to be concerned.
Dolman Law is recommending that if you believe your child may have developed autism due to Tylenol use, now is the time to enter the queue for your case to be heard. It’s important to go with a firm that understands the nuances of these cases and puts you at the front of the line to receive compensation.
