Research: Tylenol can affect young children’s breathing

Practically all of us have it in our medicine cabinets, but there’s new information about how Tylenol can affect young children.
Syracuse (WSYR-TV) -- Practically all of us have it in our medicine cabinets, but there’s new information about how Tylenol can affect young children.

A new study in the “Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology” finds that giving acetaminophen to babies may heighten their risk of asthma symptoms.

Researchers say infants that were given Tylenol were more likely to develop symptoms associated with asthma-like wheezing, breathlessness, or coughing in early childhood.

The study does not prove that acetaminophen causes the symptoms, but suggests further research be conducted.
