Starting Feb 1st, methadone dispensed from pharmacies in BC will change from a compounded 1mg/ml solution dispensed as a orange flavored drink, to a standard 10mg/ml, cherry flavored liquid called Methadose®. The new solution is 10 times more concentrated than the methadone being used now, so a smaller volume will be dispensed to patients. For more details refer to our earlier post here.
Raising public awareness of the change in formulation is crucial at this time. Our posters are now available in multiple languages (click on language).
