Acetaminophen use during pregnancy and children’s risk of autism, ADHD, and intellectual disability


Peer-Reviewed Publication

JAMA Network

About The Study: Acetaminophen use during pregnancy was not associated with children’s risk of autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), or intellectual disability in sibling control analysis. This suggests that associations observed in other models may have been attributable to familial confounding. 

Authors: Brian K. Lee, Ph.D., of Drexel University in Philadelphia, is the corresponding author.
