Methadone 15 mg

Is there such thing as an actual tablet of 15mg methadone, if so, what does it look like?

Re: Methadone 15 mg

No, there is no such thing as a 15 mg methadone tablet -- at least not in the U.S. or Canada.

In the U.S. -- methadone comes in 5 mg, 10 mg pills. 40 mg wafers (addiction only as of Jan. 1, 2008). And liquid. It also comes in a bulk powder, which can be purchased by addiction clinics and then mixed with a liquid prior to dispensing.

In Canada, it comes in 1, 5, 10, 25 mg dose tablets (most often used only for pain patients), as well as in liquid form (usu. for addiction treatment).
