Were you looking for information about Methadone? Methedone is a common misspelling of methadone.
Methadone hydrochloride (Diskets®, Dolophine®, Methadose®) is a narcotic opioid approved for several uses. Specifically, this drug is used for the treatment of moderate-to-severe pain, detoxification treatment from heroin, and maintenance treatment of addiction to heroin (or other morphine-like drugs). It comes in several strengths and forms, including tablets, oral dispersible tablets, an oral solution, or injections.
Methadone is usually taken one to three times a day. The medicine has a significant potential for both physical and psychological dependence and abuse, so specific rules and regulations guide how it is prescribed and dispensed. It may not be suitable for people with certain health conditions, so discuss your medical history with your doctor before beginning treatment.
