Is acetaminophen in pregnancy linked to behavioral problems in offspring? - Medical News Today

The findings indicate that children born to women who used of acetaminophen at 18 and 32 weeks of pregnancy were more likely to have behavioral problems and to be hyperactive. Those whose mothers used acetaminophen at 32 weeks of pregnancy were more likely to have emotional and other challenges.

The use of acetaminophen by mothers and partners after the child was born was not linked with any behavioral problems, and the team did not find a link between maternal ADHD and the behavioral problems of the children in the study.

This, say the authors, suggests that the behavioral issues are not due to other, unmeasured social or behavior factors related to acetaminophen use.
