Latest 2023 Tylenol Lawsuit Updates

January 2023 Update: As the litigation gets underway, the Court has directed the parties to prioritize discovery into the link between Tylenol and autism, ADHD or developmental disorders, focusing on documents and information that establish prenatal exposure to acetaminophen causes the problems in babies.

December 2022 Update: After the U.S. District Judge presiding over the acetaminophen MDL issued an opinion and order last month denying Walmart’s motion to dismiss ADHD and autism lawsuits brought by two families, the retailer has filed a request for an immediate appeal, which may delay hundreds of other claims being pursued while the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit considers the issue.

November 2022 Update: As the organizational structure of the federal MDL is established, the Court appointed a group of 22 Tylenol autism lawyers to serve in various leadership positions during the proceedings. These lawyers will take actions that benefit all plaintiffs on issues common across many claims. However, each individual plaintiff will still maintain their own lawyer to establish that the specific child’s diagnosis of ADHD or autism was caused by Tylenol

October 2022 Update: An order has been issued establishing an acetaminophen MDL for all autism lawsuits and ADHD lawsuits brought over the pregnancy risks associated with use of Tylenol or other similar pain medications. The cases will be centralized before Senior U.S. District Judge Denise Cote in the Southern District of New York. The first initial status conference is set for November 17.

September 2022 Update: The U.S. JPML heard oral arguments at a hearing in St. Louis, Missouri on September 29, 2022, to decide whether to consolidate and centralize the acetaminophen pregnancy autism and ADHD lawsuits before one judge for coordinated pretrial proceedings in a multidistrict litigation (MDL).

July 2022 Update: Drug makers and retailers named in the generic acetaminophen cases opposed the consolidation of the autism and ADHD lawsuits, claiming that there are not yet enough cases filed to warrant centralization.

June 2022 Update: A group of plaintiffs filed a motion (PDF) with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) on June 10, calling for centralization of acetaminophen autism lawsuits and acetaminophen ADHD lawsuits brought throughout the federal court system. However, the motion does not yet include any Tylenol lawsuits brought over use of the brand-name medication.

May 2022 Update: A growing number of Tylenol autism and ADHD lawsuits are being filed in U.S. District Courts nationwide against manufacturers or retailers of generic versions of the pain medication acetaminophen.


Does Tylenol Cause Autism Following Use By Pregnant Women?

For years, studies have highlighted the potential link between pregnant women using Tylenol and autism, ADHD and other developmental problems for children. Some of the studies and evidence suggesting that side effects of Tylenol cause autism and ADHD include:

September 2021Study Warns Against Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy: In response to a growing body of evidence highlighting the Tylenol pregnancy risks, researchers warned doctors and the healthcare providers to reconsider the safety of acetaminophen for pregnant women.In findings published in the medical journal Nature Reviews Endocrinology, researchers highlighted a series of medical studies that link acetaminophen use during pregnancy and fetal development problems, including the increased risk of children to develop some neurodevelopmental, reproductive and urogenital disorders.

June 2021Acetaminophen Use During Pregnancy Causes Autism and ADHD Risk: A meta-analysis of six European population-based cohort studies was published in the European Journal of Epidemiology, which found that children born to pregnant women who took Tylenol or acetaminophen faced a higher risk of giving birth to children who later develop autism and ADHD.

When compared to children not exposed to acetaminophen during pregnancy, researchers discovered children exposed to Tylenol during pregnancy had a 19% increased risk of developing autism spectrum disorders and were 21% more likely to suffer from ADHD symptoms.

September 2020Acetaminophen Doubled ADHD Risk: A study published in the medical journal JAMA Pediatrics suggests that use of Tylenol by pregnant women may impair a developing fetus brain, leading to ADHD symptoms and other neurological disorders.

The findings revealed that children who had acetaminophen in umbilical cord blood were twice as likely to develop ADHD when compared to children without evidence of exposure while in the womb.

“The findings that ADHD and related brain phenotypes are associated with prenatal acetaminophen exposure measured directly in meconium suggest that the safety of the drug’s use during pregnancy should be reevaluated,” researchers stated in conclusion of the study.

October 2019Acetaminophen Increased Risk of Autism and ADHD: A study performed by Hopkins University researchers was published in the medical journal JAMA Psychiatry, finding children with the highest levels of acetaminophen in their cord blood at the time of birth had the highest risk of developing autism, adhd and other neurological disorders.

Researchers found that of the children with acetaminophen in their cord blood, 25% were diagnosed with ADHD, 6% with Autism, 4% had both Autism and ADHD, and 30% of children suffered a variety of other developmental disabilities.

The data further revealed the quantity of acetaminophen exposure to a fetus impacted risks. The findings indicated children with the highest levels of acetaminophen in cord blood were three times as likely to have ADHD and nearly four times as likely to have autism, when compared to children with lower doses.

June 2018Acetaminophen During Pregnancy Linked to Speech Delays: A 2018 study published in the medical journal European Psychiatry identified a potential link between acetaminophen use during pregnancy and child speech delays.

Swedish researchers collected urine samples of pregnant women using Tylenol and other acetaminophen drugs between eight and thirteen weeks of their term, and surveyed parents once the children reached 30 months old. Researchers found the concentrations of acetaminophen collected in urine samples was associated with an increased risk of language, and the highest concentrations were associated with a 10 fold risk of suffering language delays. Children of mothers who reported taking more than six acetaminophen tablets were nearly six times more likely to suffer language delays.

November 2017Short-Term Tylenol Exposure During Pregnancy Increases ADHD Risk: A study by Norwegian researchers was published in the medical journal Pediatrics finding there may be an association between short-term exposure acetaminophen use during pregnancy, and the risk of giving birth to a child who later develops ADHD.

Of 113,000 children enrolled in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study, 2,246 of those children have been diagnosed with ADHD. Researchers found any use of acetaminophen during pregnancy resulted in a seven percent increased risk of ADHD in the first trimester, and a 27% increased risk during the third trimester, while use of acetaminophen for 22 to 28 days for fever and infection was linked to a six-fold increased risk of ADHD.

October 2016Behavioral Problems Linked To Tylenol During Pregnancy: A study by U.K researchers published in the medical journal JAMA Pediatrics, which found women who used acetaminophen at 18 and 32 weeks of pregnancy had children with a 42% higher chance of conduct problems, a 31% increased risk of hyperactivity disorders and a 29% increased risk of suffering emotional problems.

Overall, children born to mothers who used Tylenol or other acetaminophen-containing drugs during pregnancy were 46% more likely to have behavioral and attention deficit disorder symptoms than children of mothers who did not take the drug during pregnancy.

June 2016Prenatal Tylenol Use Linked to Autism: A study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology found that prenatal use of acetaminophen was associated with greater risk of autism among males, and more cases of ADHD among both boys and girls.

Researchers found the risk of a child developing autism after exposure to acetaminophen in the womb jumped to 41% even after just a single-use. Researchers also found frequent use of Tylenol or other acetaminophen based pain relievers during pregnancy more than doubled the risk of hyperactivity and impulse disorders.

May 2015Acetaminophen Pregnancy Use Linked to Hormonal Issues In Boys: Research published in the medical journal Science Translational Medicine suggests pregnant women using acetaminophen may cause infant boys to be born with low testosterone levels, indicating the hormonal interruptions the drug may pose to a fetus.

“This study adds to existing evidence that prolonged use of paracetamol (acetaminophen) in pregnancy may increase the risk of reproductive disorders in male babies,” said authors of the study.

January 2015FDA Warns Pregnant Mothers of Side Effects of Using Acetaminophen: The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued an acetaminophen pregnancy warning (PDF), indicating that expecting mothers should be cautious when selecting or using over-the-counter pain or fever medications.

The agency stated there have been a number of concerns, and not enough research to confirm the safety of an unborn child being exposed to pain relievers such as acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or other OTC medications.

April 2014Children With In Utero Tylenol Exposure 29% More Likely To Develop ADHD: A study published in the medical journal JAMA Pediatrics identified a potential link between pregnant mothers using Tylenol and ADHD, as well as hyperkinetic disorders (HKDs).

A review of 64,322 children and mothers enrolled in the Danish National Birth Cohort from 1996 to 2002 revealed mothers who used acetaminophen were 29% more likely to give birth to a child who would eventually be diagnosed with ADHD, and 37% more likely to give birth to a child with HKD by the age of seven.

October 2013Behavioral and Cognitive Side Effects from Tylenol Prenatal Exposure: A study by Norwegian researchers was published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, finding children whose mothers took Tylenol or acetaminophen during pregnancy for more than 28 days had poorer gross motor development, communication, externalizing behavior, and internalizing behavior when compared to children who were not exposed. However, children exposed to any acetaminophen use while in the womb, even for less than 28 days were still found to have poorer gross motor outcomes.

The study further revealed that the significant adverse developmental outcomes from acetaminophen exposure in the womb were likely to appear by the time a child was three years of age.

Is there a Tylenol Class Action Lawsuit?

While it is likely that a Tylenol class action lawsuit will be brought to seek damages for all pregnant women and families of children exposed to acetaminophen in utero, most Tylenol autism and ADHD claims are currently being pursued as individual product liability lawsuits.

Given a growing number of autism lawsuit and ADHD lawsuits being filed in U.S. District Courts nationwide, coordinated pretrial proceedings have been established in the federal court system, where all claims are centralized before one judge in New York for common discovery and management in a manner similar to a Tylenol autism or ADHD class action lawsuit. However, each claim will remain an individual lawsuit.

The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) was asked to establish a federal Tylenol MDL proceeding in September 2022, and determined that the litigation will be managed by Senior U.S. District Judge Denise Cote, who has been on the federal bench since 1994 and has presided over a number of complex claims and class action lawsuits.

As part of the coordinated pretrial proceedings in the Tylenol MDL (multidistrict litigation), it is expected that small groups of representative claims involving similar allegations will be prepared for early trial dates, to help gauge how juries are likely to respond to certain evidence and testimony.

Following any bellwether trials, if Tylenol settlements for autism and ADHD are not reached by the drug makers, each individual case may later be remanded to U.S. District Courts nationwide for separate trial dates to determine the amount of each Tylenol lawsuit payout.

Examples of Tylenol Lawsuits and Acetaminophen Lawsuits

As of late 2022, the pending lawsuits over Tylenol autism and ADHD risks have been filed against manufacturers and retailers of generic acetaminophen. Some examples include:

Acetaminophen ADHD Lawsuit: Candice Crawford filed a lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota on September 30, 2022, claiming Target, Walmart and Walgreens all failed to provide customers any warnings about the ADHD risks acetaminophen exposure may pose to unborn children.

Crawford indicates she took acetaminophen products nearly every day during her pregnancy to treat aches, back pains and pains in her extremities, which are common during pregnancy. As a result, her child now suffers speech delays, behavioral issues and aggression, and was diagnosed with ADHD in November 2021.

Walmart Acetaminophen Autism Lawsuit: Heather Strydom filed complaint against Walmart, Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the District of Minnesota on August 2, 2022, claiming that the massive retailer failed to warn expecting mothers about the autism risks from acetaminophen during pregnancy.

Strydom indicates that she took Walmart acetaminophen three to six times per week for back pain and body aches during her pregnancy from late 2016, through the birth of her child in 2017, alleging that the drug left her child with the developmental disorder.

Costco Acetaminophen Lawsuit: Abby Horowitz filed a lawsuit against Costco in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on July 29, 2022, claiming that the bulk retailer sold pain medications to pregnant mothers without warning about the acetaminophen autism risks for the developing fetus.

Horowitz claims she used Costco acetaminophen three to six times a week for pain relief during both of her pregnancies in 2004 and 2020. As a result, her first child was diagnosed with autism in 2014, and the second child has now begun to show signs of developmental delays and is being treated for autism.


What is the Average Tylenol Lawsuit Payout or Autism Settlement Amount?

As of 2022, there have not yet been any Tylenol autism settlements or Tylenol ADHD settlements, so the average lawsuit payout value has not been determined. The litigation remains in the early stages, and further information is likely to be available as the first Tylenol lawsuit trials are scheduled in the coming years.

Given the wide range of complications caused by acetaminophen, and different ways autism and ADHD will impact children, lawyers expect that there will be a large variance in the average Tylenol lawsuit payout, depending on the severity of neurological injuries and the types of treatment or special needs throughout the child’s life.

During the acetaminophen litigation it is expected that courts will establish a bellwether process, where small groups of representative claims are prepared for early trial dates to help determine the average Tylenol autism lawsuit payouts and Tylenol ADHD lawsuit payouts, which will factor into future negotiations.

Johnson & Johnson previously faced hundreds of Tylenol liver damage lawsuits, involving similar allegations that the drug maker failed to warn about the risk of liver failure side effects from acetaminophen. Following several years of litigation, as the first cases were about to go before juries in the U.S. in 2017, the drug maker reached a Tylenol settlement and agreed to pay millions in combined lawsuit payouts for individuals who suffered liver failure and other injuries.

As settlements for Tylenol autism and ADHD lawsuits are announced, information will be updated on this page.

I trusted my doctor that Tylenol was safe for me to take during my pregnancy! I had taken it several times during my pregnancy, if I was in pain and could not get through it naturally. I had a great pregnancy and even at an older age-40 participated in a Yale Study for Mothers and Nutrition during Pregnancy. My son participated in Yale Child Study case during the time of his diagnosis of ADHD. How Young Children Learn Study. I want to be a part of this class action suit! I do want to be a part of having these mega corporations paying for the neurological damage they have caused by lying and the covering up about known side affects whilt taking Tylenol during pregnancy. This is very similar to the Sackler Family and Purdue Pharma suit for oxicodone! This is totally unacceptable in this country, day, and time!
