ABSTRACT
The article discusses similarities and differences between methylphenidate and methadone. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has received 6 medication error reports involving cases of inadvertent administration of methadone and methylphenidate products. There are many similarities between Metadate ER and methadone that may have contributed to the confusion between the 2 drugs. Both drugs have overlapping dosage forms, routes of administration, and strengths. Both are prescribed several times a day.
