Common drug may increase risk of asthma symptoms in babies
November 13, 2012 (WLS) -- A common drug best known by the brand name Tylenol may increase the risk of asthma symptoms when given to babies.
According to a new study published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, researchers found that the more acetaminophen the children took as infants, the more likely they were to develop asthma symptoms such as wheezing, breathlessness or coughing.
The researchers studied hundreds of Danish children who had mothers with the lung disease.
The research does not prove acetaminophen caused the symptoms.
