There are no new DEA rules governing Methadone. Go to their website and look it up.

BL is correct, the rules are the same.

If he was taking it for addiction/maintenance treatment, then regular doctors have never been able to prescribe it for that. That can only be done in a clinical setting by those specially trained in its use for such.

And for pain, the new regulations concern all narcotics, not just Methadone. There have been severe restrictions placed on general practitioners and surgeons regarding what they can and cannot prescribe, so if someone needs such a medication for the long-term treatment of chronic pain, they will have to see a pain management specialist.

Thus, the doctor required will depend on why he has been taking it. Can you please post back and clarify? Thanks!
