Like everything else we swallow, it goes to our stomach and intestine, where it is absorbed into or blood stream. From there it is delivered to where it needs to go to work.

This depends on the drug and the bioavailability of the drug. When they give a certain amount of drug in a pill, it is expected that not all of it will be absorbed so they account for this by putting enough medication in the pill to work. This is why pill doses are different from parenteral or IV doses. The bioavailability is different for each different drug.
