Methadone 10mg is a medication that is primarily used in the treatment of opioid dependence and chronic pain management. It belongs to the class of drugs known as opioids, which are powerful pain relievers that work by binding to opioid receptors in the brain and blocking the sensation of pain. However, unlike other opioids such as morphine or oxycodone, methadone has a unique mechanism of action that makes it an effective treatment for opioid addiction.
