I just started on 10mg. Lexapro and have had some stomach/intestinal issues. My friend said I should just put the pill under my tongue and let it dissolve, to minimize my GI issues. It seems logical that this would work and perhaps even get the medicine into my bloodstream faster than swallowing the pill. Anyone have any experience with this or advice? Thank you

"Sublingual administration involves placing a drug under your tongue to dissolve and absorb into your blood through the tissue there. Buccal administration involves placing a drug between your gums and cheek, where it also dissolves and is absorbed into your blood."
