Methadone - Definition and Description

Methadone is a synthetic opioid, available in the United States only by prescription and for use by licensed medical facilities. Street methadone is commercially produced methadone that is either a diverted prescription or the subject of another form of diversion. Methadone is classified as a narcotic analgesic, found in the form of oral tablets, oral solutions, and injectable forms. Methadone acts in the brain as a full opioid agonist and is effective at curbing cravings and withdrawal symptoms in users who have developed physical dependence on opioids. While it can be prescribed for treating pain, methadone is better known for treating opioid use disorder (OUD), where it is used as a replacement drug during medication-assisted therapy (MAT). Similar to the opioids it is intended to replace, methadone is prone to abuse and is highly addictive, capable of producing harsh withdrawal symptoms when abstinence is attempted by users with physical dependence on methadone or other opioids. [1]

Summary - MTD Methadone Urine Test Panel

Methadone is the target compound for the MTD One Step Methadone Drug Test, detected at a cutoff level of 300 ng/mL. Methadone is indicated for treating opioid addiction/dependence and for treating pain. Methadone is found in the form of oral tablets, oral solutions, and injectable forms, dispensed under generic labels and the brands Dolophine, Methadone Hydrochloride Intensol, and Methadose. Following methadone use, approximately 5–50% is recovered in the urine as unchanged methadone, 2–25% as EDDP, and less than 1% as EMDP. These rates are significantly impacted by variations in urine pH, urine volume, dose, and rate of metabolism. In methadone maintenance subjects, urinary concentrations of methadone and EDDP ranging from 1,000–50,000 ng/mL are commonly encountered. [2]
