So lately I have been salivating way too much a few minutes after I take s suboxone 8mg strip. I'm afraid that I'm not getting all of the 8mg, I suppose I'm only getting 4mg. Somedays I have a dry mouth and I get all of it. What can I do to make sure this doesn't happen, any techniques?

well, do NOT quote me on this, but I've read here many times over,

that the "bioavailibility" of suboxone, sublingual is like 35% ????

something like that,,,
but if 8mg is enough to keep the w/d 's away and STOP your cravings, then you are getting enough.
suboxone is very potent ya know.......

anyways,, alot of people here have said that either using mouthwash before hand, or brushing your teeth, before
taking your dose, helps with the saliva and absorbtion, both.......

I do brush my teeth, before taking mine and it definitely helps eliminate a whole bunch of saliva......

they "say" not to swallow at all, when it's dissolving, but thats NEVER worked for me,,, EVER.....
I'd be drowning, and finally cave, when I tried it before.....

I think we absorb it in our throat and you know, whatever else,,,
as long as your not in W/D's your probably getting enough........

HOPE THIS HELPS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ive noticed now that I have dentures, if I don't take the top ones out, my "absorbtion" is definitely not as good,,
I don't notice right away, I notice the NEXT MORNING,
so I take it at night now, after I brush my teeth, while Im getting ready for bed..........

Here's an old thread, where the suboxdoc posted on maximum absorbtion.....

and here's some other threads, with LOTS OF IDEAS, helpful hints, etc...

anyone can give up,
its the easiest thing in the world to do, but to
hold it together, when everyone would understand if you fell apart
