  • Clear/Colourless Methadone / Metharose / Methadose Formulation

    Hi all,
    After some advice,

    Can somebody tell me the price (with pack size) for a clear (colourless) solution of Methadone? Or where I can find out from?

    I have a feeling it's mighty expensive and I'm currently considering the benefit vs cost implications. This is for a patient who has a Tartrazine allergy - I'm aware Physeptone tablets are available so may consider this an option. But need to find out the price of clear Methadone first.

    for one of my clients I used to make my own from the powder. Doubt this would be allowed now. Ridiculous that we cannot be trusted to make any simple stuff. As you say from a specials manufacturer it is going to be horrendously expensive.

      I used to make from powder supplied by Sigma. Very easy to do and just leave out colour.

          That’s what I thought, but this person has been tested and they do actually have an allergy.

          If only we were allowed to make it nowadays!

            Is that so? No extemp dispensing at all? Get an estimate from a specials lab.

              Back in the day, I had one comedian ask if he could have the powder as he didn’t like taking the liquid

                In Lancashire guidance says can only dispense colour free or sugar free if specifically says so on script. Therefore should be available.
