MTD, also known as methadone, is an opioid medication, which is sometimes called a narcotic. Methadone reduces withdrawal symptoms in people addicted to heroin or other narcotic drugs without causing the “high” associated with the drug addiction. MTD is used as a pain reliever and as part of drug addiction detoxification. Also used for maintenance programs, methadone is only available from certified pharmacies.
You should not use methadone if you have severe asthma or breathing problems, or a bowel obstruction called paralyticileus. (This is also known as an obstruction of the intestine due to paralysis of the intestinal muscle.)
Methadone can slow or stop your breathing, especially when you start using this medicine or even when your dosage is changed. Never use this medicine in larger amounts, or for longer periods of time than prescribed.
