Paracetamol linked to behavioral problems in Children.

 Scientists have found an association between mothers who took the drug in the first and third trimester of pregnancy and hyperactivity and emotional problems in their seven-year-old children,

saying that new research suggests that mothers-to-be who take paracetamol are more likely to have children with behavioral problems adding that Paracetamol is the world’s most popular painkiller and is the only one deemed safe to take during pregnancy.

But there is a growing body of research suggesting it could affect the development of children in the womb, with studies linking it with conditions as diverse as asthma, infertility and autism saying that Pregnant women have been told there is no need to panic – they should continue to take the lowest dose needed for the shortest time possible and see their doctor if they have any concerns.
