Talk:Methadone

Excuse me, because this is my first contribution to psychonautwiki.org and I don't know how to proceed. I would like to upload a photo (taken by me, for public domain) of Methadose bottles distributed in Colombia. I would like to know what others think about the relevance of the image. An additional motivation I have for the upload is to point (in the "summary" or "description") that chronic pain or opioid-dependent patients in Colombia can take home 1 month supply, for any daily dosage prescribed [BTW: I was prescribed methadone for severe chronic neuropathic pain. The photo is of a monthly supply]. Methadone made by Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals in the U.S.A, is imported by the "Fondo Nacional de Estupefacientes" (National Narcotics Fund) of the Colombian government, and then repackaged and distributed. In Colombia, methadone is a controlled substance subject to state monopoly. In Colombia the abuse and diversion of methadone exist, but are rare. The tablets inside the bottles are these: https://www.drugs.com/imprints/methadose-40-5070.html. Many thanks in advance.
