Re: GPHC Methadone

The General Pharmaceutical Council (GPhC) is the body responsible for the independent regulation of the pharmacy profession within England, Scotland and Wales, responsible for the regulation of pharmacists, pharmacy technicians and pharmacy premises.

There are two licensed formulations of methadone: a
powder and a liquid. Licensed liquid methadone comes in different strengths, and is ready to dispense. Licensed methadone powder is weighed out and mixed with a suitable liquid, called a diluent, to make methadone liquid.
Methadone, in all formulations, is a schedule 2 controlled drug 2 that is subject to safe custody requirements. This means that it must be stored under secure conditions in a specially constructed cupboard called a controlled drugs cabinet. These cabinets are not usually very large.
Methadone powder takes up less storage space than methadone liquid.
