So I've read many and many ways people tale their Subs...
My question is how exactly does it work?
I read onmy script to NOT swallow it... so....
Why under the tongue? Or on top? Or up in the gums?
What does this do? How does it work that way? What's released and where?

Sorry of my questions are silly... but like my subject title says, new to suboxone! Been hooked on opiates for years now and finally decided to get some help. Had my melt down amd was exhausted from it all... as well as i just wanted my life back, i missed the old ME...So I went to turntohelp to find a doctor! Since I cannot afford the time away from work to actually go to a rehab treatment!

Under the tongue is the best and most preferred method. When you allow the tab or strip to dissolve, the medicine (buprenorphine/ active ingredient in Suboxone) is absorbed through the mucous membranes. There will be excess saliva in your mouth due to the breaking down of the medicine, you can either swallow the saliva or spit it out.

Best of luck with your suboxone treatment, it's worked well for countless people here. Hopefully you as well.

I can't say for certain if it's Suboxone related but you're not the first person to mention Edema related to starting/ taking subs and you won't be the last.. It could very well be a reaction in some cases.

(the list goes on..)

Doctor J blogs about it here but I believe his theory is that we're all addicts and don't really realize what pre-existing conditions we have prior to sub use. (Any side effect possibly relating to sub use gets a big eye roll around these parts..)
