Because the medication is only effective when absorbed in your mouth. Any medication you swallow has no benefit. In fact, the active ingredient (buprenorphine) when swallowed is converted into nor-buprenorphine, which can cause constipation for some. I am glad someone put you on Belbuca... it really works quite well
