What Is Methadone Used For?

Is Methadone Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this medication for something other than the purposes discussed in this article (this would be known as an "off-label" use). Using methadone to treat addiction outside of a clinic is considered an off-label use.
 
However, unlike most off-label uses for medications, this one is also illegal in almost all situations, and a healthcare provider would face serious consequences for such practices.
