Changes to methadone formula coming Feb. 1, 2014

Back to list

Beginning February 1, 2014, the current methadone formula dispensed by pharmacists will change. British Columbia will transition to a new methadone formula, called Methadose, which provides a safer, more consistent treatment for patients, but with ten times the strength of the current formula.
