Acetaminophen is an analgesic agent that may be hepatotoxic when ingested in quantities exceeding 150 mg/kg.

Excessive formation of ketone bodies (acetone) results in increased blood levels (ketonemia) and increased excretion in the urine (ketonuria). This condition is associated with a decreased availability of carbohydrates, such as dieting or decreased use of carbohydrates. Diabetes and alcohol consumption are common causes of ketoacidosis. Acetone is one ketone body formed from acetoacetate. Ingestion of isopropyl alcohol also leads to the formation of acetone.

Ethanol is the most often abused substance whose primary effect on the CNS varies with blood concentration. Not all individuals experience the same effects at a given blood level. Other CNS depressants have an additive effect when taken in combination with ethanol. At high concentrations, ethanol elimination is relatively constant (zero order). Fatal concentration typically exceeds 0.4 g/dL. Blood concentrations of 0.3 g/dL are associated with coma. Ethyl alcohol is present in many medicinal liquids and mouthwashes.


The analysis of alprazolam is used to monitor compliance with drug therapy.

The tricyclics are used to treat depression. Nortriptyline is an active metabolite of Amitriptyline. Therapeutic drug levels are monitored to assist the physician assessing therapeutic response and to avoid toxicity.

Barbiturates are used as hypnotics, sedatives and anesthetics and are readily absorbed from stomach. Duration of action of barbiturates, in therapeutic doses varies from: 8-16 hours (long acting, e.g., phenobarbital); 4-8 hours (intermediate acting, e.g., amobarbital); 3-6 hours (short acting, e.g., pentobarbital). Barbiturates may enhance other CNS depressants, such as ethanol, morphine derivatives, tranquilizers, and reserpine. Urine should only be used if blood cannot be obtained.

Carbamazepine and its metabolite (10, 11-carbamazepine epoxide) are widely used for control of generalized tonic-clonic, partial-onset, complex and mixed seizure disorders. The metabolism of carbamazepine in epileptic patients has several different pathways that can be altered when the patient is co-medicated with other anticonvulsants and, therefore, its therapeutic level should be monitored along with its metabolite in their free and protein bound states.

Carbamazepine is an anticonvulsant which is structurally related to the tricyclic antidepressants and is useful in treating patients with temporal lobe epilepsy. Carbamazepine levels are monitored to assure adequate therapeutic levels are achieved and to avoid toxicity.

What Is Drug Screening?

A drug screen is a panel of tests that look for the presence of one or more drugs in your system. Depending on the test, the panel may require a sample of urine or blood.

However, urine is the most common method of drug testing.

Here are some of the most common drugs that these screens test for:

  • Marijuana
  • Amphetamines, such as methamphetamine
  • Cocaine
  • Steroids
  • Phencyclidine
  • Barbiturates, such as secobarbital and phenobarbital
  • Opioids, such as: codeine, oxycodone, morphine, hydrocodone, heroin, and fentanyl

A drug screen will come back positive for various drugs depending on how long they've been in your system. Some drugs remain in your body longer than others.

Once your body completely metabolizes and passes these drugs, the test will come back negative. If you haven't been using these drugs, your test will come back negative as well.

Drug Screening Risk Factors

Someone may ask you to complete a drug screen if you're in any of the following situations:

  • Getting a new job
  • Coming up on a job anniversary
  • Being evaluated for legal reasons
  • Providing forensic evidence
  • Taking opioids or other prescription drugs that show up on drug screens
  • Joining or already a part of a sports organization

If any of these or similar scenarios apply to you, you may have to take a drug screen at some point. 

Reasons for Drug Screening

Most commonly, drug screens are ordered in the following situations:

  • Employment, both new employment opportunities, and repetitive testing during employment
  • School-related testing
  • Sports organizations for professional and collegiate players
  • Legal purposes
  • Healthcare monitoring

It's important to note that your healthcare provider may ask you to take regular drug tests if you're on a prescription for a drug that shows up positive on the test. They could be doing this to make sure that you're taking the medication while ensuring that you're not taking any other drugs that are contraindicated.

Your healthcare provider may also order a drug screen if they suspect drug abuse.

What Are the Signs and Symptoms of Drug Abuse?

Drug abuse is a disease that forms a dependent relationship between a patient and drugs. No matter the drug, this kind of relationship can be detrimental for the patient. Therefore, healthcare workers are vigilant in ensuring that drug abuse is caught early and treated as needed.

Here are some of the common signs and symptoms of drug abuse:

  • Inability to stop using a specific drug or set of drugs
  • Thought that one needs the drug to continue with their standard way of living
  • Ignorance of any consequences that may come from their use of drugs
  • Slowed or slurred speech
  • Agitation
  • Mood swings
  • Panic attacks
  • Paranoia
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Nausea
  • Blood pressure changes
  • Heart rhythm changes
  • Delirium

If you believe that you or someone you know may be abusing drugs, you should let a healthcare worker know as soon as possible. Getting help early is the key to battling drug abuse and drug addiction.

Remember, not everyone who abuses drugs has an addiction. However, the chronic use of drugs can lead to addiction over time.

How Is Drug Screening Conducted?

During a drug test, you have to follow a specific series of tests. These standard instructions ensure that all patients are handled fairly:

  1. Wash your hands
  2. Clean your genital area with a wipe
  3. Move the collection container under your urethral opening
  4. Start urinating in the container
  5. Collect the minimum amount as determined by the facility you're testing at
  6. Finish urinating into the toilet
  7. Return the container to the designated professional without flushing the toilet
  8. Wash your hands

The facility that you get your test done at may have slightly different procedures. However, you'll find that most facilities will follow these standards closely.
