Methidone

Were you looking for information about Methadone? Methidone is a common misspelling of methadone.
 
Methadone hydrochloride (Diskets®, Dolophine®, Methadose®) is a prescription medication used for treating moderate-to-severe pain, as well as heroin addiction (or other morphine-like drug addictions). It is a narcotic that works by binding to opioid receptors throughout the body, which produces pain relief, reduces opioid cravings, and reduces opioid withdrawals.
 
Because methadone is classified as a controlled substance in the United States, there are special rules and regulations for prescribing and obtaining it. There is also a significant potential for both physical and psychological dependence and abuse.
