:oops: :lol: I'm in a silly mood today, I do have a question though.. Does anyone believe that spitting out there suboxone makes it less effective vs swallowing it? I have noticed that during my taper I have been spitting out the excess and I am not sure if I am just not allowing it to dissolve long enough or what but I don't feel the same as if I were to just swallow it. I am on the films and to be honest, I'm not sure how long it actually takes the subs to dissolve. I was curious if anyone else noticed this or if this is just one of those things in my head. How long does everyone let it dissolve before they start moving there tounge around and talking? I will not pick up the phone or talk for atleast twenty mins.. lol! Hope everyone is having an awesome day!!

If you're keeping your dose in your mouth for 20 minutes, I'd say that is plenty of time. Spit or swallow as you choose. I used to keep my dose (tablet) in my mouth for only 5-10 minutes, at most, and swallowed and it always seemed to work fine for me.

According to most everything I've read, Buprenorphine is absorbed very poorly by the digestive tract, so technically you shouldn't be feeling any difference between either method. I say do what works for you and keep on being silly. :D

I've tried for many years to change my wife's view on this..but she won't stop spitting.
She doesn't take Suboxone though...
I take Suboxone...and I've never spit anything out after taking it..
