According to experts, taking paracetamol supplements during pregnancy increases the risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by one third.

About half of pregnant women take prescription painkillers, mostly against headaches. , it can prevent normal brain development. The British Health Insurance Agency (NHS) recommends that pregnant women should use only paracetamol-containing painkillers for pain relief, but also for the shortest time possible and as short as possible. So far, no such abnormality has been detected, but recent research suggests that paracetamol may increase the risk of neonatal hyperactivity.

During the study, more than 64,000 children born in Denmark between 1996 and 2002 were observed, with more than half of the mothers reporting having taken paracetamol-containing painkillers during their pregnancy. Studies have shown that these mothers had 37% fewer children with ADHS and had to take drugs for their condition. The greatest risk arose from the fact that the mother had taken such drugs for six months or more, and the need for drug treatment almost doubled.
The leader of the research, dr. Zeyan Liew, a specialist at the University of California at Los Angeles, said further research is needed to accurately map the effects of paracetamol, but in the meantime, all women advised to consult a physician should be consulted.
