Methadone in a man
If a men takes methadone Can it affect somehow his future kids?
Methadone taken by the father of the baby should not affect the baby. Methadone taken by the mother during pregnancy will cause the baby to become dependent on it. This will cause the baby to go through opiate withdrawal after birth.
