Methadone is given once daily to addicts on maintenance therapy, but for pain it's supposed to be given several times a day. I think that we're more like pain patients in that respect. (When bupe is used for maintenance treatment of opioid dependence, it's given once daily as well, but I need to take it every 4-6 hrs.)
