Ensuring that the film sticks down fully under the tongue, fiddling with dose in the mirror with an open mouth

So, my question is: when administration of Suboxone Film is placed under the tongue, is it beneficial to stay in the mirror with an open mouth, ensuring that the film sticks down fully? Or do you just place it underneath, and then immediately close your mouth? For example, making sure all of the edg...

Question about dose of Suboxone Film 8mg/2mg

So, quick question about dose regarding Suboxone Film 8mg. I always used to tear my films in half, creating two 4mg pieces. However, with this I would tend to take 4mg and that would it for the day. I’d save the other 4mg piece for the following day, removing the need for opening a brand new one. Wi...

Re: If you could balance the Suboxone film under your tongue in front of the mirror

Okay, let me rephrase. Also, only a couple of people have responded. I could count the number of users on one hand. 1-2-3-4 only like 5 people ever answered. Anyways! My new question is then referring to the proper dosage of Suboxone. For example, with an 8mg strip you can split it in half, creating...

If you could balance the Suboxone film under your tongue in front of the mirror

So I’m working towards achieving maximum absorption with Suboxone films. Using the 8mg film strips, I’ll sometimes divide them into 4mg, 2mg, 1mg and 1mg pieces respectively. I’m always wondering about the most effective way to take this medication. I’ve found that I can balance part of the strip un...

Suboxone film being washed away after placing in mouth under tongue

So I’m looking for the best way to administer Suboxone sublingual film. With the 8mg film strips, I have a tendency to tear them in half, creating 4mg and then again 2x 2mg. However, this seems to be too small. If I’m not staring at them directly in the mirror, after closing my mouth they tend to ge...

Re: Which side does the film go under the tongue? Imprint up or facing outwards

And, how can I ensure optimal absorption of the film? The pills seem more substantial. They are solid, and thus would take longer be much more noticeable dissolving in our mouths under the tongue. So far, administering the 8mg sublingual film, I’ve found it to be helpful taking the whole strip at on...

Which side does the film go under the tongue? Imprint up or facing outwards

So I’ve been trying to achieve successful results with Suboxone, usually one 8mg strip per day. Just now, at the time of writing, I tried to administer the film on the left side of my tongue. Imprint side facing outwards. It didn’t do much of anything…almost disintegrated into nothing. This is compa...

Ingesting Suboxone Film with a high tolerance…Also, splitting the film into 4mg and 2mg pieces

So, I’d like for this topic to focus on two main things. A couple quick questions I have, that I’d like to get some other users opinion on. The first, very simple. Do you take the full 8mg amount? Or do you find yourself splitting the film into 4mg and even smaller 2mg amounts? I’m sure a lot, if no...

Re: Should I be taking this with an open or closed mouth?

Hey, rule62. Do you administer this medication via buccal route with the films or the pills? I can see it working perfectly by placing it between the lips and gums with the pills. But I just tried this with the strips, and it didn’t seem to have any effect. Both 1mg pieces were placed first under li...

Trying to get Suboxone film to work / be administered in the same way as buprenorphine patches

I remember having this conversation with my Suboxone doctor. We were discussing how there are buprenorphine patches, that (almost like timed release), gradually release/administer small doses throughout the day. In regards to maximizing bioavailability of Suboxone film, do you agree that the film is...

Re: Can this website be trusted?

Thank you for the reply, rule62! When you say my instinct was correct, Do you mean that the website would most likely scam you? Or would you still receive the medication, albeit through “illegal” means. Seems to me just like ordering anything else online! And since I already gave them, or a site ver...

Can this website be trusted?

(Link removed by moderator) I just found this website online. They are offering Suboxone 8mg pills for only $2.00 each If you look around their site, they also offer a variety of other things, as well! Morphine 30mg for only $1.00 each Codeine 30mg for $1.00 Basically, any medication you could ever ...

Re: Should I be taking this with an open or closed mouth?

Do you split or cut your film into smaller pieces? Before putting them in your upper lip between your gums? I’ve found it to be beneficial these days to take the whole 8mg film at once. This is the same way we would have taken this medication the first couple of times we were prescribed it. I know f...

Re: I have a problem with losing bioavailability of the Suboxone film

How crucial is keeping an open mouth? I’ve found if I stay in front of the mirror, I can watch these films dissolve for hours at a time. Not only will they retain their original shape and form, but also stay in place. This is opposed to placing the film in the mouth under the tongue and then immedia...

I have a problem with losing bioavailability of the Suboxone film

I’ve been taking Suboxone film for years. I’ve had multiple doctors prescribing the medicine. However, I’ve also always been used to splitting or cutting the films into smaller portions. Always an 8mg strip, separated into 2mg or 4mg or even 1mg Recently, I found it beneficial to take the whole stri...

Re: Are the two large veins underneath our tongues the focal point?

Well, I’ve been finding the brand name Suboxone film to be great! It’s been a pleasure to take a whole 8mg strip and placing it on either side underneath the tongue. However, there comes a point where a certain amount of degradation can be noticed. Almost like being diminished in quality, as soon as...

Re: Should I be taking this with an open or closed mouth?

I’ll try that now! Thanks, rule62. I’m interested to find out if my 2mg piece of a 8mg film will be the same as your 2mg strip. I’ll try placing it above my front teeth, in between the gum and lips. I’m surprised it doesn’t just slide down onto the teeth themselves! Do you use a mirror to ensure pro...

Of course! Can you go into any more detail in so far as taking it between your gums and upper lip? As opposed to under the tongue or buccal administration on the inside of the cheek. I’ve always wanted to try it the way your describing! Do you put a whole 8mg strip up towards your gums/upper lip? Or...

However, I noticed on the packaging it says not to do this. I’m sure many users still are, especially for tapering ...
