The incorrect information was given for the total sucrose content and daily maximum dose, which was stated on methadone oral solution 1mg/ml and methadone mixture 1mg/ml.
The accurate data of both products is 441.5mg/ml total sucrose content and 26.49g daily maximum dose.
The methadone had incorrectly stated these quantities as 197.17mg/ml and 11.83g respectively.
Martindale said: “We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused by this misinformation.”
