You are correct they are exactly the same and you should feel the same from each pill. It is crazy to think that one would make you feel any different then the other because they are the exact same milligram. I hope this helped I've asked my Dr. This same question because im prescribed Methadone 10 mgs and at 1 time wondered the same thing.

what is stronger......the pills or the liquid (biscuit)? I personally don't think the pills are as strong as the liquid or the biscuit.

I have wondered the same thing your sisters are wanting to know because I have heard that they are different as well. However I have done quite a bit of research on them to get the final conclusion and at this point all that I have come to find that is different between the two is they're shapes and the numbers and letters printed on them. My husband is prescribed 10mg methadone and he has gotten both kinds from different pharmacies so I am assuming that it just depends on which distributor each pharmacy is supplied by because I am prescribed Roxycodone 30mg and I have also gotten two different images with them, one having the M box on the back just like his methadone with #'s on the other side and a lighter blue color than the other one marked with ALG 265 on one side and a line on the other and that one is a darker blue. When I go to People's Pharmacy they dispense both of our scripts with having the M box on one side and #'s on the other but when I go to CVS they dispense the other brand. So again to answer your ? Or try to anyway I do not believe nor have I found any evidence supporting that they are different in any way other than appearance. *£#€*Now to sound like a hypocrite.... I will say for some unknown reason I do like the M box brand of my Roxycodone better than the other and my husband prefers the M box brand Methadone as well so it's still a little bit mysterious lol...***Hope to have been a little help in answering your question or at least giving my opinion***

One would think, "same dosage, same effect," even some undereducated physicians will use the same reasoning. There are a couple of different variables that make this popular held belief to be in error. One variable, and the most logical variable is the chemical structure of any drug/medication can cause quite a difference in affect; different pharmaceutical companies may synthesize a particular drug that is ever-so-slightly off a bit in chemical structure. Another variable is quality control, it has been shown to be a reality in the pharmaceutical world that one company may not use the same exact, precise amount of the active ingredient, e.g. Mallincrodt may use very strict quality control methods and produce a 10 mg. methadone tablet with exactly 10 mg. of methadone, while Roxane may not use such stringent quality control measures and produce a methadone tablet reported to be10 mg. while if evaluated may vary between 7 - 10 mgs. of methadone. I have heard these arguments that one brand is preferred over another brand because of strength of medicine to actually feeling different results. I have also experienced such anomalies. I can tell you that I felt completely different physically and emotionally when I had been taking Roxane 10 mg. methadone tabs for years and took my prescription into an out of town pharmacy that only had a generic form of methadone listed as "Dolophine" the difference between the two brands wasn't so much a matter of strength of dosage as it was the psychological feelings that resulted. I have seen differences in strength in other pain meds as well, particularly the popular oxycodone tablets, no matter if each particular brand was instant release or extended release.

No they are not the same. Roxane was bought out by another company Western Pharmaceuticals a few months back and ever since a lot of complaints with ppl feeling sick. Also the 10 mg pill size has changed. Many have switched to Malinkrodt

There is a huge difference between mallinkrodt brand methadone and any other brand. Period. Mallinkrodt is an effective pain reliever. Any other brand I've taken has given me all the side effects but no real pain relief. There are differences in these medications. It could just be the amount of or type of filler used or there could be actual differences in the dose. Before lortabs became norco there were pink lortabs made by qualitest. I knew several prior that swore these were just better pills. I couldn't really tell a difference (probably because I take methadone and don't really notice the effects of a lortab) but wasn't surprised when 3 months after the quality brand lortabs were discontinued I received a notice from my insurance company informing me that qualitest had been putting closer to 15mgs of hydrocodone in their labeled 10mg lortabs and that I needed to discard any of those pills if i still had any. This is just an example, I don't think mallinkrodt is adding extra medication to their product, however I do think that they might start the manufacturing process with a higher quality raw product. Another very common example of the same medicine working very differently is to compare an extended release oxycodone (op) to an instant release (roxy) these contain the exact same medication but work very differently, due to the delivery system and fillers. Or even compare a new oxycodone (OP) to the older oxycontin (OC) - these medications contain the same active ingredient but vary wildly in effect for most people. If someone tells you that a certain brand of medication works better for them, for their particular body chemistry, why are you so intent on finding a way to prove them wrong? If this is you perhaps some careful self examination is needed to find out why it is so important to you?
