    From my understanding all medication has a period of one year before it expires..Call your pharmacy and double check..

    yah dude I think that **** would be good for more than a year..the drugs dont really degrade..they just dont want a bunch of cabinets full of drugs everywhere.
    Is it liquid methadone? keep it in a fridge drawer..if its wafers they stay good for years

    i guess it would depend on what formulation of methadone you have -is it liquid, wafer, or pill?

    We only have the liquid form here in Aus (when used for opiate maintanence), and its mixed (greatly diluted to ~200mls to prevent injection) with cordial and water....it doesn't last long, and must be refrigerated.

    If you have tablets or wafers and they have been kept out of sunlight and moisture then i would guess they would be fine.

    ah, my son in law got pulled over and the bears found alot of partly empty bots in his car, they busted him for posession, but when they sent out the samples to the lab he beat it because they all came back null.

    In my country (NZ) we have this dreadful tasting stuff called Biodone (supplied free by our government). For me it's a water solution at 2mg/ml. In water, drugs degrade farly quickly (maybe a few months), but in a sugar solution the methadone should last longer. Check out jams - they last for yonks!
