Methadone/Buprenorphine Treatment: ???

On April 19, 2011 we contacted the Ministry of Health of Sri Lanka requesting information on whether continued treatment/dosing is possible. As soon as we have received a response we will present up-to-date info on this page.

Importation of Methadone/Buprenorphine:

Foreign methadone/buprenorphine patients are allowed to bring
their own supply of medication needed for personal use for the
duration of stay on condition that they carry a certificate from
their home physician or clinic (including total quantity of methadone/buprenorphine,
daily dosage, dates of arrival in and departure from Sri Lanka)
which clearly supports their need for the medication.
