I have read that the naltrexone is absorbed in the stomach, so would that mean that when you spit out the sublingually produced liquid that the naltrexone is not absorbed?
Is suboxone more effective when the liquid it produces sublingually is swallowed or spit out?

I have also read that the buprenorphine in suboxone is only absorbed in the mouth.
Ive been on suboxone for 3years,Ive never have heard of anyone say that it could or would work that away. Personally if I was to spit out what disolved, I would feel that I was waisting what my body thinks it needs. I would like to know this myself,will be looking for others opinions on this to! Hope all turns out well for you!
I'm in the V.A. suboxone program (6 months) where I was told that the naloxone is part of suboxone to prevent people from crushing and injecting the pill. I don't know for sure if naloxone only absorbs via ingestion method or not but I would suggest not attempting to prove or disprove naloxone's inability to be absorbed sublingually ( You know what I mean? )
