Will it not work as good, or what? This under the tongue thing, really sucks. These strips are too big.I've been cutting them, but it still kinda sucks.

I dont anything will happen, literally... Both kinds are made to be disolved under the tongue so they seep into the blood stream. Swallowing them bypasses that straight into the stomach. Although I am sure some may get into your blood stream by swallowing them its not nearly the amount u need to do the job... Hence, under the tongue works the best. I know the taste is horrid but... I love wintergreen life savers and when ever I have to take me suboxone tab.. ( never tried the film and wont ) I could bare the taste cause I have been told by someone who has taken both, they all taste gross... Good Luck

Yes, you should take it under the tounge, I used to take the tablets and i recently switched to the films (Insurance). I actually like the films a lot better than the tabs because they disolve much quicker... i know the taste sucks but i got used to it after a while. It helps to drink water before (not during) you take your films so it disolves easily... Good Luck :)

I am probably the only one who prefers the tablet over the film any day of the week. The film would almost make me puke, I'm taking 32mg a day, and I just now got generic tablets hooray! When I was first prescribed the tabs my insurance didn't cover anything and it was choking me out of $1000 a month just for the Suboxone. I found that Butterfinger candy bars work very well at killing the taste.
