Is their a difference between liquid methadone and the pill form in terms of the effect? I am taking a regiment of 70 mg of the liquid, and I just got a hold of some 10 mg methadone pills. I'm assuming they show up the same on a lab test. I'm on probation and can only take methadone. I'm trying to stay off of true opiates such as heroin and morphine, but the cravings are still pretty bad, and I'm 34 days clean of everything except methadone. My probation office uses a lab machine to test so if they do show up any different I'd like to know. they can even test your level of the drug. I appreciate any advice, thanks.
