Methadone-associated overdose deaths (MAOD) -- those in which methadone may have caused or contributed to the death -- have risen sharply. Before the late 1990s, methadone was used mainly to treat opioid addiction but has since been increasingly prescribed to manage pain. Taken too often, in too high a dose, or with other drugs or alcohol, methadone can cause serious side effects and death. MAOD can occur under several different scenarios, incl. improper dosing levels by practitioners, misuse by patients who may combine methadone with other drugs, or abuse -- using the drug for non-therapeutic purposes. This report examines the regín. of methadone, factors that have contributed to the increase in MAOD, and steps taken to prevent MAOD. Ill.
