Side Effects of Methadone

Just like any medicine, methadone can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience problems. Most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are easily treated by you or your healthcare provider.
 
Common reactions to methadone include, but are not limited to:
 
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Lightheadedness
  • Dizziness
  • Sedation
  • Sweating.
