Is acetaminophen safe for pregnant women?

A new medical study is raising questions about the acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol and many popular painkillers. Pregnant women have long been told Tylenol, unlike aspirin or ibuprofen, is safe for their developing babies. But in a new study researchers found that children whose moms took Tylenol while pregnant were more likely to develop A.D.H.D. The study didn't find that Tylenol caused A.D.H.D, but it did find a link. Anderson discussed it with Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.

    Hello from Calgary – After my suicide attempt and subsequent adult ADHD diagnosis in 2011, I'm on a mission to raise awareness for adult ADHD! The Adult ADHDBlog is quickly reaching people all over the world, and I've built aTwitter following of over 12,400 targeted followers. I also have 89 people who have already signed up to read my book once I get a deal!

    90% of adults with ADHD are stillundiagnosed, and 21-45% are in jails in Canada, research tells us. Please help me spread the word about The Adult ADHD Blog on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and with the press! This couldn't be more important. After my near-suicide in 2011, a new mission was born.

    Yours in the pursuit of global mental health awareness,
