Tylenol Linked to Autism

Tylenol is among the most popular over-the-counter pain medications in the world. Millions of people use Tylenol and its generic counterparts regularly to relieve headaches, reduce pain, and reduce fevers. In fact, it is estimated that 50 million Americans use products containing acetaminophen every week, with more than 25 billion doses being taken annually.

In a study by Yale University and Johns Hopkins University, researchers noted a link between mothers who took Tylenol while pregnant and the occurrence of conditions like autism in their children. In the study, researchers examined cord blood samples and measured acetaminophen levels.

The researchers concluded that children with the highest levels of acetaminophen in their cord blood were three times more likely to be diagnosed with autism.

Several other studies have further established the link between in-utero exposure to acetaminophen and autism. This includes a 2018 study that found children who were exposed to Tylenol for prolonged periods during pregnancy had a 20% higher risk of being diagnosed with autism.

Tylenol Lawsuits Receive Class Action Certification

On June 10, 2022, plaintiffs’’ lawyers filed a motion with the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation seeking to have Tylenol autism lawsuits consolidated into a single multidistrict class action lawsuit. On October 5, 2022, that new class action was certified in the Southern District of New York.

About 20 Tylenol autism lawsuits are pending in courts across the country; however, that number is expected to increase significantly.

What Health Issues are Linked to Tylenol Exposure During Pregnancy?

While Tylenol is typically promoted as and considered to be a safe pain-relief treatment, in-utero exposure can result in a number of adverse health conditions, including:

  • Autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
  • Diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Neurodevelopmental problems later in life
  • IQ level deficits
  • Behavioral issues
  • Sleep problems
  • Early puberty in girls
  • Male fertility problems
  • Undescended testicles

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

Following an accident, there are always more questions than answers. At Thomas J. Henry, we’re here to answer any questions you have about your injury case.

A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.
A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:
  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)
  • Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences
  • Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.
Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.
In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual's claim "value" is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.
If you have been injured or suffered illness due to a recalled drug, having an expert witnesses can be essential to proving your claim. Thomas J. Henry has spent decades building professional relationships with leading experts including:
  • Pharmacologists
  • Toxicologists
  • Regulatory Compliance Consultants
  • Forensic toxicologists
  • Drug Injury Causation Experts
  • Biomechanics
