John,

Are you looking for the name of a physician who can prescribe methadone for you in the DR?

We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it. However, I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)

all i needed to know is can it be perscribed in the Dominican Republic

It is available worldwide. You should have no problems getting your medication.
I hope you enjoy the DR. I've visited there and it chock-full of natural beauty.
I hope this information was helpful for you. But I do work for tips so I want to make sure you are happy with me before rating me. If you have another question on this or a related issue feel free to fire away. And please let me know if the rating system gives you any troubles.
Thanks in advance,
