Metadol Concentrate 

Indication

Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) belongs to the class of medications called narcotic analgesics (pain relievers). These pain relievers are also known as opioid analgesics. Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is used to relieve chronic (long-term) severe pain when less potent pain relievers are not effective. It should never be used by someone who has not tried other pain relievers. Opioids decrease pain by working on the brain to increase pain tolerance. For pain relief, Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) works quickly and stays in the body for a much longer time than other opioid analgesics.

Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is also used in combination with medical and social services to help people break the habit of drug abuse, when the drug being used is another opioid, such as a heroin or morphine-like medication. Because it is active in the body for a long period of time, the withdrawal effects of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) can be milder than those of heroin or other abused drugs.

Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Metadol Concentrate 

Dosage

The usual starting dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) for adults is 2.5 mg to 10 mg taken by mouth every 4 hours for the first few days. After this, your doctor will determine the appropriate dose for you, to be taken every 8 to 12 hours. Doses of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) for pain relief vary widely and depend on the circumstances of an individual. If you have not taken opioid pain relievers before, Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is NOT appropriate. Discuss other alternatives with your doctor.

After a certain dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) has been taken for a period of time, the body may get used to it and a higher dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is needed to relieve the pain. Generally, your doctor will try to find the dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) that will give you acceptable pain relief without an unacceptable level of side effects. This helps to reduce the side effects of the medication and allows for the dose to be adjusted upwards if needed. Always check with your doctor if you feel your medication isn't working well anymore.

Over time, Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may produce tolerance and physical dependence as your body becomes used to the drug. Tolerance occurs when a dose that used to provide acceptable pain relief is no longer effective, and higher doses are required to achieve the same level of pain relief. Physical dependence is a state where the body will go into withdrawal if the medication is stopped suddenly. If you have been taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) on a regular basis for a long period of time, talk to your doctor before stopping the drug, as withdrawal effects can occur.

Tolerance and physical dependence are not the same as addiction. Addiction is defined as a psychological need to use the medication for reasons other than pain relief. Although people may become addicted to Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), it is most common for people who have had addictions to other substances in the past.

The starting dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) for opioid detoxification is determined by the dose needed to suppress withdrawal symptoms from other opioid medications. This is almost always done in a hospital setting. Slowly, the dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) will be reduced by your doctor, keeping in mind that the objective is often to totally withdraw the narcotic with minimal withdrawal symptoms.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice. If you miss several doses in a row, contact your doctor for advice on how to restart the medication.

The liquid form of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) will be provided to you in juice or another drink such as Tang or grape Kool-Aid. Store the medication in the refrigerator. If the medication is mixed in apple juice, return any unused medication to the pharmacy for disposal after 7 days. If it is mixed in another beverage, return the unused portion after 14 days. Use an oral syringe to measure each dose of the liquid, as it gives a more accurate measurement than household teaspoons.

Store the tablet form of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Keep Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) in a safe place to protect it from being stolen. Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) can be fatal if it is taken by anyone other than the person for whom it was prescribed.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

HEALTH CANADA ADVISORY

July 17, 2020

Health Canada has issued new restrictions concerning the use of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone). To read the full Health Canada Advisory, visit Health Canada's web site at www.hc-sc.gc.ca.

Abdominal (stomach) conditions: As with other narcotic medications, Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may make the diagnosis of abdominal conditions more difficult or it may worsen these conditions. If you have abdominal problems, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Abnormal heart rhythms: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) can cause abnormal heart rhythms. Certain medications can increase the risk of a type of abnormal heart rhythm called QT prolongation, and should not be used in combination with Metadol Concentrate (Methadone). If you have heart disease and abnormal heart rhythms, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Accidental use: When Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is used by anyone other than the person for whom it was prescribed, the effects of the medication may be fatal. Children are especially at risk of a fatal overdose. Keep Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) out of sight and reach of children.

Alcohol and other medications that cause drowsiness: Do not combine Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) with alcohol or other medications (e.g., antidepressants, sleeping pills, anxiety medications) that cause drowsiness. Additional drowsiness and suppressed breathing can occur and be dangerous and possibly fatal.

Asthma and other respiratory conditions: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may cause increased breathing difficulty for people having an acute asthma attack or those with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) (chronic Bronchitis, emphysema) or other conditions that affect breathing. If you have asthma or any other breathing disorder, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Blood pressure: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) can cause severely decreased blood pressure, which is often made worse by other medications that are being taken at the same time. When first starting Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), it is a good idea to slowly rise from lying or sitting positions, to give the blood pressure the time needed to adjust to the new posture. Standing up or sitting up quickly may cause severe dizziness and even fainting.

Dependence and withdrawal: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may be habit forming if taken for long periods of time. Drug abuse is not a problem for people who require Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) for pain relief. Physical dependence (a need to take regular doses to prevent physical symptoms) has been associated with other narcotic analgesics.

Although Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is also used to help people withdrawing from other habit-forming medications, withdrawal symptoms may be experienced if the dose is significantly reduced or suddenly discontinued.

These symptoms include irritability, sleep problems, agitation, diarrhea, abdominal cramps, vomiting, muscle cramps, extreme anxiety, restlessness, tearing, runny nose, yawning, sweating and increased breathing or heart rate. Reducing the dose gradually under medical supervision can help prevent or decrease these withdrawal symptoms when Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is no longer required for pain control.

Drowsiness/reduced alertness: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may impair the mental or physical abilities required for the performance of potentially hazardous tasks such as driving a car or operating machinery. You should avoid such activities until you are certain Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) does not have this effect on you.

Head injury: The side effects of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) can make the effects of a head injury worse. If you have an acute head injury or other condition which increases intracranial pressure (pressure inside the head), discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) to build up in the body, causing side effects. If you have liver problems, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed. Your doctor may want to test your liver function regularly with blood tests while you are taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone).

Pain: It may become necessary to add pain relievers to Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) treatment if you are injured or have surgery. Do not increase your dose of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone). Discuss with your doctor your need for temporary pain relief with another medication.

Prostate or urinary problems: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) can make symptoms of prostate or urinary tract problems worse. If you have prostate or urinary tract problems, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Serotonin syndrome: Severe reactions are possible when Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) is combined with other medications that act on serotonin, such as tricyclic antidepressants and serotonin reuptake inhibitors (medications used to treat depression). Symptoms of a reaction may include muscle rigidity and spasms, difficulty moving, or changes in mental state including delirium and agitation. Coma and death are possible.

If you are taking antidepressants, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Thyroid function: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may make symptoms of an underactive thyroid gland worse. If you have thyroid disease, discuss with your doctor how Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Pregnancy: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) crosses the placenta and may affect the unborn baby of a mother who is taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone). Infants are often born smaller to mothers who have used Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) during pregnancy and they may also have long-term learning and behavioural difficulties. Infants born to mothers who have been taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) may experience life-threatening withdrawal symptoms after birth. Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks to the unborn baby.

If you become pregnant while taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), contact your doctor immediately. The body uses Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) more quickly during pregnancy, possibly resulting in withdrawal symptoms.

Breast-feeding: Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), it may affect your baby. Babies exposed to Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) through breast milk are at risk of life-threatening breathing problems. If you have been breast-feeding and taking Metadol Concentrate (Methadone), you should wean the baby slowly to prevent withdrawal effects in the infant. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Metadol Concentrate (Methadone) have not been established for children less than 18 years old.
