I take suboxone and it requires you to dissolve it under your tongue and I was wondering if alprazolam worked the same way?
If you let Alprazolam disolve under your tongue does it work better than taking it orally?

Hello My husband and both have dual diagnosis as well. We have been on Zubsolv tabs and/or Suboxone films for 5 1/2 years plus 1 mg tabs on Klonopin, twice a day. We both find it more effective to let the anxiety meds, dissolve under the tongue. Best of luck.
Sublingual Xanax is available by script in the US. The tablets look different, are packaged differently and work different to the tabs meant to be swallowed
The sublingual version is offered for a reason... faster onset. But please take care to source the dissolvable sublingual tablet. Just ask your doctor for that script. Don't mess around with crushing tablets designed to go through/survive the gut when the proper option exists (& in convenient blister packs, at that!)
I have been on Xanax for the past 5 years and found that if dissolved under tongue, it works fast... like 10 min but the taste is HORRIBLE. I'm not sure if that the answer above (dissolving has no effect and to swallow). If thats true, what does saliva do that stomach acid wont?
very simple answer..no. its not a sublingual tablet like suboxne/subutex. neither is "chewing it" just swallow it and thats the proper and BEST way:)
hi siera,no it does work any faster or better.im on sub also so i know why you would think so.sub works like that so you dont absorb the naloxone,your saliva neutralizes so people dont shoot it.hope to hear from soon.bye
