Tylenol (acetaminophen) is used by millions across the world to relieve pain, but it wasn’t until recently that scientists and health professionals warned that acetaminophen exposure during pregnancy may impact fetal brain development.
Over the past decade, a growing body of scientific research has found that the children of women who took Tylenol (or generic acetaminophen) during pregnancy have an increased risk to develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Johns Hopkins University studied the cord blood samples of children whose mothers took Tylenol during pregnancy.
Their findings, published as “Association of Cord Plasma Biomarkers of In Utero Acetaminophen Exposure With Risk of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Autism Spectrum Disorder in Childhood” in JAMA Psychiatry are as follows:
“In this cohort study of 996 mother-infant dyads from the Boston Birth Cohort, cord plasma biomarkers of fetal exposure to acetaminophen were associated with significantly increased risk of childhood attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and autism spectrum disorder.”

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 by consolidating cases and addressing all pretrial procedures in one court.
When a large number of people who have all been affected by the same thing file individual lawsuits, the federal court system allows for the consolidation of these cases into an MDL to make them easier to manage. The original lawsuits do not have to be in the same state.
MDLs take cases from multiple federal districts (each state has at least one district), and puts them into one district court.
This single district court, and one judge, then address all the 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.
If you or a loved one used Tylenol or generic acetaminophen during pregnancy, and the child born was subsequently diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), you may qualify to file a Tylenol Autism Lawsuit.

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.
Tylenol Autism Lawsuits are filed against generic acetaminophen drug manufacturers and producers.
These manufacturers include Walgreens, Walmart, Costco, CVS, and other big-box stores that produce generic acetaminophen.
The children of pregnant women who took acetaminophen have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ADHD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
