I know certain medications can be taken sub-l to increase the efficacy and speed of action. Can regular old ativan be taken sub-l? If so, does it work any faster?
It can be taken sublingually but due to its high oral bioavailability (85%) and relatively fast onset of action (30-40 minutes) I guess it just is not that common. I had not heard of people using this method for Ativan until now.
