How does one swallow which dissolves? Not being funny, in the first place why would one take a med to spit it out? You perhaps refer to SUBUTEX
(buprenorphine HO sublingual) Tablet? This is a mouth dissolving pill.

You're right, Rajive, I think he means should he swallow his spit. And yes, he should.

Ya, Chris correct, I did ask him that, anyways, thanks.

You should swallow your saliva... do not spit, as this will negate the effects of your medication! Didn't this prescription come with directions?
Best o' luck!

You can actually spit out the dregs but I would wait at least 10 full minutes to make sure that the medicine is fully absorbed under the tongue. You can also use breath mint or other small candy if you hate the taste while you are trying to dissolve the medication.

Is chewing gum alright as far as using something to make the taste better?

Everyone is different i know me personally I swallow it just to make sure I'm not spitting out any of the medicine... milk also helps to get rid of the taste afterwards... good luck on your recovery!!!

There is no need to swallow a sublingual as the true design of the medicine is to be absorbed through the lingual veins under your tongue. I have taken the medication for years and always spit the medication out after it dissolves (5-10min.) I notice if I accidentally swallow the medication it makes my stomach upset and I feel nauseous.
