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: possible
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.
