Pain drugs used by pregnant women linked to behavioral problems in kids

A new study suggests that women who take acetaminophen while pregnant are more likely to have children with behavioral problems.

The researchers found 5-percent of the children of women who took the medicine had behavioral problems by age seven.

Researchers stress that women should not stop taking acetaminophen to treat a fever or pain during pregnancy.
