  1. Is Methadone availble at Kerala, Maharashtra, NE region and WB. We get pts from NE region and WB to collect Oral MOrphine. HOw come. I want to know . Is it true?

  2. Lingegowda and PPC
    You are correct; this is primarily available at drug de-addiction centres and not for pain relief. The information has been reported from responses from the concerned States.

  3. In view of comments re methadone and in discussion with Nagesh, Methadone has been changed to “never” for these four states/territories. jfc

  4. Thanks for clarifying. Otherwise it would have sent wrong message. While we are still struggling to make Oral Morphine available at most of the Northern states, it would have sent wrong message.
    Thanks to PPC and Nagesh
