Response to Wouldes and Woodward: Maternal methadone dose during pregnancy and infant clinical outcome
- We re-examine results of T. A. Wouldes and L. J. Woodward (N & T, 2010).
- No support is found for linear relationships between methadone dose and neonatal outcomes. - - - The conclusion of a methadone dose–response relationship with neonatal outcomes is unwarranted.
