Couldn't wait for what? No i accidently swallowed it...... :( will it still work?

I tink I read its only about 20% strength swallowed...if it sat in ur outh for a while before you swallowed it thatll help...but if you dont start feeling like shit just ride it out til the next dose.....if you feel crappy in a couple days this is probably why

I feel crappy now lol, so I was wondering if that was why, I guess I will take some more :/ this sux :/

I'm late chiming in on this, but you're right... they hardly work at all when swallowed. Has to be absorbed under the tongue. Sorry!

My nurse says it dosn't do shit if you swallow it. Don't even try to talk when it's under your tongue.

Yah i figured out it doesn't work when i started full blown w/ding because of this accident :/ sucks because I have no insurance so I can't afford to be wasting these. oh well you live and learn, gotta take this 1 day at a time and I will so be clean :P

I'm pretty sure I recall reading less than 20% is absorbed if you swallow it, I dunno if that means 19.5% or 2% though. I'd imagine its close to 20%

try an altoid before , or hot water before u do it, but dont eat anything for at least a half hour, they say 20 mins but half hour is better. the altoid opens up ur muci and makes for faster absortion. and u can spit the shitty juices too. its more of a melting process:)

No clue if it works and no pointers towards scientific evidence to back it up but my Dr. told me to drink something acidic like orange juice (I think it was orange juice) which would acidifiy my mouth, not only allowing the pill to absorb better but allowiing it to disolve quicker. I make no claims, this is just what my Dr. told me so I normally try to take a swig of some type of acidic juice before taking a dose of suboxone.

These all sound like pretty good ideas especially the hot water. Do not swallow any of your spit. From the time you put the tab in. I always used to make absolutely sure that I would not have to talk or open my mouth or swallow for any reason for atleast 30 mins after putting subs in. This is probably overkill but I really didn't wanna lose any of the bupe. I think it is pretty easy to lose some when administering things sublingually sp.? I think massaging your cheeks with your hands and the inside of yourmouth with your tongue (think gummers) will help get it absorbed more quickly. All this shit is probably just ritual but, I like ritual.
