Acetaminophen During Pregnancy Linked to ADHD

It’s estimated that between 5-10% of school children suffer from ADHD.

This disorder affects more boys than girls and is characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive actions.

This is surprising and concerning, especially since doctors recommend it for pain during pregnancy.

In this segment, Dr. Mike discusses the research and why you might want to think twice about taking acetaminophen, especially while pregnant.
