TYLENOL AUTISM ADHD LAWSUIT
A growing number of Tylenol lawsuits are now being filed against Walgreens, CVS, and other manufacturers of acetaminophen-based drugs, alleging that the use of the painkiller during pregnancy caused children to develop autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
What is Happening?
The U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) called for complaints brought throughout the federal court system to be centralized before one judge for coordinated discovery and pretrial proceedings.
Presently, at least 19 Tylenol autism and ADHD lawsuits have been filed in U.S. District Courts nationwide, raising allegations that pharmacies and drug manufacturers failed to warn about the risks associated with prenatal exposure to acetaminophen: the active ingredient in Tylenol.
