Association of Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy With Behavioral Problems in Childhood: Evidence Against Confounding | JAMA Pediatrics | JAMA Network

Conclusions and Relevance  Children exposed to acetaminophen prenatally are at increased risk of multiple behavioral difficulties, and the associations do not appear to be explained by unmeasured behavioral or social factors linked to acetaminophen use insofar as they are not observed for postnatal or partner's acetaminophen use. Although these results could have implications for public health advice, further studies are required to replicate the findings and to understand mechanisms.
