Methadone Hydrochloride Oral Solution Supplier




Oral Dosage :

  • Adults : Medical withdrawal from methadone should be done in decrements as tolerated by the patient on a daily basis or at 2-day intervals. The dose should be sufficient to keep withdrawal symptoms at a tolerable level. Many hospitalized patients may tolerate a daily dosage reduction of 20%. In ambulatory patients, a somewhat slower schedule may be required. Patients should be allowed to discontinue withdrawal at anytime, for any reason, without feelings of guilt. They should then be placed into a methadone maintenance program at an appropriate dose. Any decrease in methadone dosage could precipitate a relapse to drug use. Methadone use is preferable to the use of illegal street drugs.
  • Pregnant women : Medical withdrawal of methadone maintenance is generally not recommended during pregnancy. If required, methadone withdrawal is done in decrements of 2 to 2.5 mg every 7 to 10 days. This should be done in conjunction with an obstetrician who can monitor the effects on the fetus.
  • Adults, including pregnant women : 20 to 30 mg PO initially unless low opioid tolerance is expected; use a lower initial dose for these patients. Additional doses of 5 to 10 mg of methadone PO may be given 2 to 4 hours after the initial dose if withdrawal symptoms have not been suppressed or if symptoms reappear. The total daily oral dose on Day 1 should not ordinarily exceed 40 mg. Dosage adjustments on subsequent days should be based on withdrawal symptom control at the time of expected peak methadone activity (2 to 4 hours after dosing). Due to the extended half-life of methadone, it may take up to 5 days to achieve a steady-state dose that controls symptoms of opiate withdrawal. Prior to achieving steady state, adequate total daily doses may not hold patients for a full 24 hours. Deaths have occurred in early treatment due to the cumulative effects of methadone. The stabilizing dose is continued for 2 to 3 days
