Methadone: Chemical | Organic composition

Last modified: Monday, 1. June 2009 - 6:02 am

Methadone is an odorless, white powder that dissolves easily in water and alcohol. In methadone treatment programs, it is often mixed with an insoluble matrix to form what are known as methadone biscuits. These biscuits stay in the stomach longer because it takes awhile for the stomach acids to break down the matrix. This is important because it allows more of the methadone to be absorbed, rather than passing quickly through the stomach when in liquid form.
