How long will I need to be on M.O.U.D?

The length of time that a patient will remain on methadone will vary based upon the unique needs of each individual. Although methadone is safe for long-term use, patients are not required to remain on this medication long-term. Although some patients will remain on methadone for long-term maintenance, others will only utilize it short-term. Patients should work closely with their physician in order to comfortably wean off of their medication. Once a patient’s system is free from methadone, he or she may transition onto a different medication or remain medication-free.
