The authors of the new Danish study in the journal JAMA Pediatrics
suggest that prenatal use of acetaminophen or Tylenol may double
the risk of behavior/attention disorders such as ADHD in the child.
And the more often the pregnant mothers used the drug, the higher
their children’s risk.
According to Dr. Harold Levinson, this important study may help
clarify some of the non-genetic causes of ADHD. And although a
causation has not been determined here, the correlation is sufficient
to warrant caution.
