Scientific evidence published by health professionals around the world indicates an increased risk to develop Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children of women who took Tylenol during pregnancy.
Recent scientific research conducted by top institutions and universities around the world have found that Acetaminophen exposure during pregnancy may increase a child’s risk of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Lawsuits are being filed against the drug manufacturers and distributors of Tylenol and Generic Acetaminophen.
In October 2019, researchers from Johns Hopkins University published a study in the JAMA Psychiatry Journal, titled:
In the publication, Johns Hopkins University researchers studied the cord blood samples of children whose mothers took Tylenol during pregnancy, sourcing data from 996 mother-child pairs in the Boston Birth Cohort.
The Johns Hopkins University researchers found that:
“Cord plasma biomarkers of fetal exposure to acetaminophen were associated with significantly increased risk of childhood attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder.”
Significant data points in the Johns Hopkins University study are as follows:
Another study conducted on the association of Acetaminophen exposure and neurodevelopmental disorders found similar results, warning expectant mothers of the potential dangers of the drug.
Researchers from a host of countries across North America, Europe and South America published the study, titled:
“Prenatal Exposure to Acetaminophen and Risk for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Autistic Spectrum Disorder: A Systematic Review, Meta-Analysis, and Meta-Regression Analysis of Cohort Studies”
In this study, researchers found that children exposed to acetaminophen during pregnancy experienced:
In September 2021, researchers and health professionals published a consensus statement titled “Paracetamol use during pregnancy — a call for precautionary action“.
Their consensus statement warns the public that paracetamol, the active ingredient in Tylenol and acetaminophen, may alter fetal development.
The researchers state that rates of developmental disorders, neurological disorders, and other urogenital and reproductive disorders have been rising.
They further state that:
“… [These outcomes] have been associated with maternal and perinatal use of paracetamol (APAP).”
The civil lawsuit for Tylenol Autism and ADHD claims has been centralized in the US District Court: Southern District of New York.
The Acetaminophen – ASD/ADHD Products Liability Litigation (MDL 3043) is consolidating all claims relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and acetaminophen use by pregnant women.
Multidistrict litigation (MDL) is a special federal legal procedure designed to speed the process of handling complex litigations (such as the Tylenol Autism ADHD Lawsuit) by consolidating cases and addressing all pretrial procedures in one court.
When a large number of people have affected by the same medication, device, or toxic exposure file individual lawsuits, the federal court system allows for the consolidation of these cases into an MDL to make them easier to manage.
MDLs take cases from multiple federal districts (each state has at least one district), and centralizes them into one district court.
This single district court, and one judge, then address all discovery and pretrial procedures that apply to every case – cutting the costs and amount of resources needed, and keeping court rulings consistent with similar cases.
The Tylenol Autism Lawsuit is still in its early stages. No settlements have been agreed to as of yet, and there are many legal steps to be taken before a settlement can potentially be reached.
The Tylenol Autism MDL Judge has consistently denied motion to dismiss filings by the defendants, and the litigation is beginning to take shape.
In light of the Tylenol Autism Lawsuit being in its early stages, our Tylenol Attorneys estimate that potential settlement amounts for an individual Tylenol Autism Lawsuit could range between $50,000 to over $300,000.
These estimates are only projections based on prior results in dangerous drug lawsuits. These estimated settlement amounts are not guarantees.
The lawsuits consolidated in multidistrict litigation named drug manufacturers of generic acetaminophen as defendants.
These companies include:
Settlements for mothers who took Tylenol and whose children were subsequently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or other developmental disorders will depend on a number of factors.
Factors that can impact Tylenol Autism Lawsuit settlement amounts include quality of evidence, severity of diagnoses, damages claimed, and more.
Tylenol Lawsuits are being filed by parents across the country who claim that acetaminophen exposure during pregnancy resulted in the Autism or ADHD diagnosis of their child.

It’s currently too early to tell what the average payout or settlement is for a Tylenol Autism ADHD Lawsuit.

No settlements have been reached with drug manufacturers for acetaminophen autism lawsuits or acetaminophen ADHD lawsuits.

Several neurological disorders and other health risks may be associated with acetaminophen exposure during pregnancy.
These neuorological disorders and health risk include, but are not limited to:
No, there is not currently a Tylenol Class Action Lawsuit for Autism and ADHD diagnosis injuries. Rather, Tylenol Autism Lawsuits are being filed into multidistrict litigation.
The multidistrict litigation consolidates all Tylenol/Acetaminophen Lawsuits into one US District Court to speed up the process and ensure consistent decisions across all Tylenol Lawsuits.
Many law firms refer to the multidistrict litigation as the “Tylenol Class Action Lawsuit” or the “Tylenol Class Action Lawsuit MDL”, but this is incorrect. In a class action lawsuit, settlements are distributed evenly amongst all plaintiffs. However, in a multidistrict litigation, a potential settlement would be divided amongst plaintiffs according to the facts of their individual Tylenol Autism Lawsuit.
This means that Tylenol/Acetaminophen Lawsuits would be compensated on a case-by-case basis according to the unique facts and damages in each individual case.
