Hi, I am new to this forum ive been on suboxone to quit a ten year pain pill addiction. I understand alot about this medicine, but I have a ?. Is it normal for the medicine to feel stronger when its melts under one side of your tongue apposed to the other? I asked the pharmacy they said that's strange! No help! Any ideas thanks!

Hey Living, welcome to the forum.
Well thats a ew one. Have not heard of this efore.
Knowing that the intire mouth can and does absorb our doses, id would say no to this question.
Somehow your feeling it as stronger on oneside than the other? Interesting.

Painting the mouth ,gums ,and inside the lip area will insure maximum bio ability.
This is a medical fact Living. Im not sure why you are feeling this.
Maybe others can come aloug here with more of an answer for you.
Hope all is well otherwise in yojr treatment.
Keep posting and thanks for joining..

There is an unnoticed, constant flow of saliva from the ducts under the tongue, in the gutters on each side of the tongue and down the throat... perhaps you have less flow on one side? But I'm inclined to agree with Razor and assume it is a 'psychological' thing (that you are absorbing the same amount, but your mind is convinced you feel more doing it one way). But who knows-- I can't feel your experience, so my opinion is just a guess!

I too experience the same thing but I don't really notice it very much. The reason being, my right major salivary gland was removed a few years ago so there is less saliva on that side.


Use whichever side you want or put it between your cheek and gums like snuff or chewing tobacco. Either way, you'll get absorption.
