The Food and Drug Administration has alerted health care professionals to reports of death and life threatening side effects associated with methadone administration. The warning is specifically for patients new to methadone therapy for pain control and patients who have recently switched to methadone after treatment with other strong narcotic pain relievers. Health care professionals are warned to adhere to methadone prescribing information to avoid dangerous side effects, such as slow or shallow breathing and changes in heartbeat that may not be felt by the patient.
