Re: Methadone And Methadose

Nothing as far as I know. I believe Methadose is the name for a generic of Methadone.

Re: Methadone And Methadose

Mathadose is just Mallinkrodts poor version of generic methadone.
Good luck, Dave

Re: Methadone And Methadose

i don't know if it's just me or what. when my doc upped my rx from 30mgs to 40mgs the pharmacy gave me a dissovable tablet, and the label said methadose. before that i was taking 10mg tablets. and the label says methadone....so i've always wondered the same thing, was i given the wrong rx, or what?

I like the order to use complete sentences, as if that'll change the answer of...nothing.

I believe the dissolvable tablet is the only (exact) 40mg Methadone "tablet." It was probably just convenient, but not wrong.

Re: Methadone And Methadose

Methadone and Methadose are technically the same medication. They are generics to the brand Dolophine and come in 5 and 10 mg tabs. You can also get a 40 mg tab that is scored in quarters and made to dissolve in liquid. I believe it is marketed by Mallinckodt. They have been made known by many on these boards as producing inferior products. I take Methadone, and I have told my pharmacy I would not accept anything but Methadone, by Roxane, so they order enough in for me to fill my monthly script of 540 tabs.

It is well known by many who follow this and other boards that if you want a good product, steer clear of Mallinckodt's products. They are the ones who are the makers of Methadose.
