New questions on effects of acetaminophen on babies
November 13, 2012 (WLS) -- Acetaminophen is used to treat pain and fever. Tylenol is the best known of many brands. But a study in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology finds that giving acetaminophen to babies may heighten their risk of asthma symptoms.
In the study of 422 Danish children, researchers found the more acetaminophen they were given as infants, the more likely they were to develop symptoms associated with asthma. They include wheezing, breathlessness or coughing.
The study does not prove acetaminophen causes the symptoms, but researcher say it suggests the need for more research.
