Does anyone out there know if the methadone in pill form is equivalent to the methadone in liquid form... for example, if someone is at a methadone clinic and they are on 100mg... is it the same as taking ten of the 10mg methadone pills? I was wasnt sure if it was formulated differently or if there was some sort of conversion ratio.
Thanks All :)

it is my opinion that the potency or the potential effectiveness is dependent upon the pharmacutical co. whom manufactures the methadone you are taking and also if this is generic vs. brandname these two variables i find much more important to altering effectiveness.My own experience with the clinics liquid and pills/wafers is that my clinics methadone is not as strong and even more apparent to me was the half life was not that of the pills i found that work best the rectangular M 5771. the difference is only detectible by a true junkie that is still trying to stay high so my advice is take the methadone most readily available and focus on stability and not nodding out and druling all over urself before u fall out in ur plate of food. may peace be with u and improvement as well.stay up get down but dont stay down and hold on to these honest words uv found. and just as i lol my neme is ... fan-to-al... get it fentanyl;wholey holy shit is my ass high after a shot of fentanyl but i dont do that any more

My wife goes to a clinic and takes about 70 mg of liquid. She can hardly feel the effect of the 70mg liquid to 70mg of pill form. What i'm saying is the clinics methadone is not close to the prescription pill form. Not sure what the ratio is but according to my wife its about 1/2 the potentcy.

Yes its the same but ive been on the 40 mg wafers for years now and then my clinic switched to the liquid and it doesnt last as long to me which i was taking 100 mg wafers then switched to 100 mg liquid. So me personally i think the pills in any mg last alot longer
