Keep Sharp for Safety Concerns With Patients Switching Methadone Liquids

Health Canada is warning about the risk of withdrawal symptoms when switching methadone liquids in patients with opioid use disorder.

Some patients are reporting withdrawal symptoms after switching between methadone liquids...Metadol-D, Methadose, and Sandoz-methadone...even after being on the same med for years.

One theory is that differences in taste or volume may lead patients to believe the med isn't as effective.
