Questions and Answers

in a urine test will acetaminophen test positive for pain killers?

They don't test for acetaminophen. They test for amphetamines, barbiturates, and marijuana.

acetaminophen??

I am 11dpo, haven't tested yet. No sign of AF except a cramp here or there. My question is, if I AM pregnant, is acetaminophen ok to take? The cramps are minor, but annoying and I have a headache today too.

Other symptoms (incase you're curious) :-)
road map veins all over my chest, bbs big, sore and heavy. I think I had implantation spot on Monday.


Thanks all!!

yes it is safe to take. Dont make a habit of taking tylenol though.. taking a cold washcloth and placing it over your eyes and forehead will relieve your headache just as fast as taking a pill...

just an idea. I know its safe to take, but i tried not to abuse it like i did before i was pregnant..

best of luck

How long will Hydrocodone show up in a drug test if I took one pill of 5mg hydrocodone/500mg acetaminophen?

Just wondering how long it would stay dectecable. I had a very old prescription and just took one to help with some back pain. Not thinking that i will have to go for a urine test for a driving job.

The half-life of hydrocodone is 3.8 hours. It does leave the body fairly quickly, and moreover, hydrocodone isn't usually tested on 'standard' drug tests (morphine and stronger opiates typically are). In your case, it will probably be undetectable within 24 hours.

which chemical tests would distinguish acetaminophen from ibuprofen?

I think they are both polar, obviously you can use TLC......What else???

melting point, IR should show an amide absorption band for acetaminophen, NMR integrate it and count the number of protons. Ibuprofen has a carboxylic acid group, and there a couple of tests for carboxylic acids. Im sure there are plenty more ways to distinguish them

How long does the drug solpadeine stay in your system? (Contains Codeine, acetaminophen, and caffeine)?

How long will the painkiller solpadeine stay in your system? (Contains Codeine, Acetaminophen, and Caffeine) Also, will it show up on a drug test?

Depends on how long and how much the drug is in your system. It will definitely show up on a drug test, but if your legitimate, you've got proof, then you have nothing to worry about. But....downside, codeine is highly addictive, so I would talk to the doctor about alternatives.

can i take acetaminophen/cod elixir alp for pain before my Mock transfer test?

I am having another mock test done for my upcoming FET in May,my other mock was done in 2008 of april before ivf. I am doing the mock

I wouldn't trust an answer from YA on that one sweetie call and ask a health professional

Will prescription medication; acetaminophen/codeine show up positive in a UA test?

Will prescription medication; acetaminophen/codeine show up positive in a UA test?

it is an opiate therefore it will show up as one. if you have a prescription for it tell the ua tech. if not.. please stop taking other people's medications.

Would acetaminophen give a positive phenol test?

yes, it would - it has a phenol group in the structure

why do ibuprofen and naproxen not give a positive test w/ 1% iron(III)chloride, and acetaminophen give postive?

Activated sludge is a process in sewage treatment in which air or oxygen is forced into sewage liquor to develop a biological floc which reduces the organic content of the sewage. In all activated sludge plants, once the sewage has received sufficient treatment, excess mixed liquor is discharged into settling tanks and the supernatant is run off to undergo further treatment before discharge. Part of the settled material, the sludge, is returned to the head of the aeration system to re-seed the new sewage entering the tank. The remaining sludge is further treated prior to disposal.

Activated sludge: Biomass produced in raw or settled wastewater (primary effluent) by the growth of organisms in aeration tanks in the presence of dissolved oxygen. The term "activated" comes from the fact that the particles are teeming with bacteria, and protozoa. Activated sludge is different from primary sludge in that the sludge contains many living organisms which can feed on the incoming wastewater.

Activated Sludge Process: A biological treatment process in which a mixture of sewage and activated sludge is agitated and aerated. The activated sludge is subsequently separated from the treated sewage by settlement and may be re-used. A common method of disposing of pollutants in wastewaters.

In the process, large quantities of air are bubbled through wastewaters that contain dissolved organic substances in open aeration tanks. Oxygen is required by bacteria and other types of microorganisms present in the system to live, grow, and multiply in order to consume the dissolved organic "food", or pollutants in the waste. After several hours in a large holding tank, the water is separated from the sludge of bacteria and discharged from the system. Most of the activated sludge is returned to the treatment process, while-the remainder is disposed of by one of several accepted methods.

Sewage is domestic, municipal, or industrial liquid waste products. How it is disposed varies by the area, and the local commitment to the environment. In some countries, notably the United States, national law mandates sanitary treatment of sewage, and outfalls are regulated. Surprisingly, many quite wealthy countries have untreated outfalls directly to surface water, often causing disease, pollution and undrinkable tapwater.

Sewage may be carried directly through pipelines to outfalls, or from upstream sources via river systems. Sewage is often from storm water runoff of streets, parking lots, lawns and commercial and industrial areas. In some urban areas, sewage is carried separately in sanitary sewers while runoff from streets is carried in storm drains. Access to either of these is typically through a manhole.

Sewage may drain directly into major watersheds with minimal or no treatment. When untreated, sewage can have serious impacts on the quality of an environment and on the health of people. Pathogens can cause a variety of illnesses. Some chemicals pose risks even at very low concentrations and can remain a threat for long periods of time because of bioaccumulation in animal or human tissue.

The solution, of course, is sewage treatment.

Sewage contains mineral, animal and vegetable matter in suspension, as well as large numbers of bacteria. It may contain paper, food, grease, cigarettes, leaves, faeces, and urine. Other items that occasionally are flushed down toilets include child care-related waste (such as disposable diapers, training pants, baby wipes, bibs, pacifiers, and outgrown clothing), feminine hygiene materials (tampons and pantiliners), medical waste from hospitals, and industrial chemicals. Some items are disposed of in the sewage system for illicit purposes. Drugs are often disposed of this way in a raid, as are legitimate medications at the end of their useful life. In some prisons, inmates flush blankets down the powerful vacuum suction toilets in vain hopes of amusement caused by a clogged line. Sewage odors are unacceptable to most people. In a confined space such as a manhole or lift station housing, gases such as hydrogen sulfide may be concentrated to dangerous levels, requiring special breathing apparatus and rescue apparatus for workers who must enter such spaces. A special hazard of hydrogen sulfide is that it becomes odorless at high concentrations. Another dangerous gas that can form in sewers is methane, which is both toxic and explosive.


Sludge is a solid waste extracted in the process of sewage treatment. When fresh sewage water is added to a settling tank, approximately 50% of the suspended solid matter will settle out in the period of an hour and a half or so. This collection of solids is known as fresh sludge. Such sludge will become actively putrescent in a short time and must be removed from the sedimentation tank before this happens.

This is commonly accomplished by two different ways. In an Imhoff tank, fresh sludge is passed through a slot to the lower story or dige
