Overview Information on Methadone Hydrochloride
Pharmacist Tip
Place a dispersible tablet in liquid and wait a minute for it to dissolve. Be sure to drink the entire mixture.     
Methadone is a type of medicine known as an opiate analgesic, or pain killer. Your doctor may have prescribed methadone to treat your pain that did not respond to nonnarcotic painkillers. Methadone is also given to patients to prevent withdrawal symptoms in patients who are in treatment for opiate drug addiction. Methadone is also given to patients as a part of a maintenance treatment program along with other social and medical services. These programs are designed to help people keep from taking heroin or other morphine-like medicines and to increase the success rate for conquering drug addiction.
