How To Get Methadone Out Of Your System
Unclear on question: Do you mean how long would it take to get to therapeutic levels? That would be within the first day or two, and 80 is a hefty dose.

I took 15mg methadone a week ago, will it be out of my system for a drug test only a week of my last dose? Please help. If not, how can I get it out?
Depends: If this was a one time use, it should be clear in a week, but if it was long-term it's less certain. Half-life range top is 48hrs, so you're probably good - but don't use it w/o Rx and that should satisfy a drug tester. It's good you care and use that motivation to stay clean! Best wishes. ...Read more
Methadone: It depends on a number of factors: body weight, metabolism, amount used, etc. It is metabolized slowly and can "sit" in fats.

It depends: Methadone because it stays in the body's fat can remain detectable in the body for extended periods. Hair testing might show its presence for months.

If I took 10 mg methadone one time on may 21 and had a 10 panel drug test taken may 29 will it come positive and when will it be out my system?
Depends on the: Panel. There are many "10-drug" panels and they are not standardized. Some look for Methadone and some do not. A single dose of 10 mg is not likely to be present 7 days later. I am MORE concerned with your taking a drug not prescribed for you, particularly methadone. The safe starting dose in an opioid-naive patient is 2.5-5 mg. If this were not prescribed for you, don't do it again! Not safe!! ...Read more
