FDA Stays Neutral, Boosting Tylenol Autism Lawsuits
In September 2023, Judge Cote sought the FDA’s perspective on whether new warning labels should be included on Tylenol and acetaminophen products, a decision that could have influenced the outcome of federal lawsuits. The FDA declined to submit a statement, marking a significant win for plaintiffs in Tylenol autism and ADHD cases.
Record-Breaking Month for Tylenol Autism MDL
In July 2023, 64 new lawsuits were added last month, bringing the total number of pending cases to 200. Thousands of potential plaintiffs are still waiting on the sidelines to see how the MDL Judge will rule on the admissibility of scientific causation evidence.
Tylenol Safety is Questioned
New research is challenging the long-held belief that Tylenol (acetaminophen) is entirely safe, especially for use during pregnancy. Despite being one of the most commonly used over-the-counter medications, with about 20% of the U.S. population using it weekly, scientists do not fully understand the compound.
The medication has been heavily marketed to pregnant women as the safest option for pain and fever relief, which raises questions about its safety given the new research findings.
