Sharing Suboxone sublingual film with a young kitten

Recently, I adopted a kitten from Craigslist. Only cost $300, and we’re in love. As this is my first time being a new pet owner, a lot has been trial and error. I have 80 strips left, each 8mg I didn’t feed it directly to the kitten Instead, while it was dissolving/absorbing underneath my tongue, I ...

I need a hand…quite literally!

Each and every time I take my Suboxone film 8mg, I lose access to one of my hands. Whether it be the left or right, it’s often being used to clamp my mouth shut. Fingers are placed over the lips, ensuring the mouth does not open. This is cumbersome for a number of different reasons. Mainly, I don’t ...

Re: Vertical or horizontal placement?

Thank you for the reply, suboxdoc! It’s always nice to get the official opinion from the doctor. For me, as soon as I close my mouth and am no longer staring in the mirror at the strips dissolving under my tongue, the saliva almost washes everything away. I’ve heard others complain of this as well, ...

Vertical or horizontal placement?

Upon retrieving the Suboxone sublingual film from its packaging, do you tend to place it in a vertical or horizontal position? The reason I ask is because I’ve been used to cutting my films into smaller pieces, which lowers the mg and also provides multiple doses throughout the day, instead of just ...

Does Suboxone Film naturally dissolve into a solution mixed with saliva?

So I’ve had mixed results. Often times, I’ll be taking my Suboxone Film while looking into a mirror. Mouth open, as I can ensure it stays in place for hours on end. However, as soon as I close my mouth, it seems the saliva would wash it away/render it ineffective. So my question is: Is Suboxone Film...

Re: Has anyone ever tried Zentrip or other Sublingual OTC medications?

Jonatham I’m surprised to hear you have to hide/duck under when placing the Suboxone Film under your tongue. When you’re doing live streams on YouTube and Twitch...I mean, that makes sense! But our predicament is much more dire than that. Imagine having to worry about taking it out in the open. For ...

Are the two large veins underneath our tongues the focal point?

I’ve been hearing a lot of conflicting reports. Is it the capillaries we should be focusing on? And if so, what do those look like; Are they the tiny red ones? Or are the two big veins where we should be focusing on for placement? Also, what are some ways to maximize the absorption into these orific...

Re: Should I really take it for the rest of my life?

This concept sounds really funny to me...

There’s even a dedicated ‘bupe for life’ section on this forum.

Who would be lucky enough to land themselves a script that lasts a lifetime?
Let alone a doctor willing to work with them for that long, lol!

Re: Using Suboxone as a Psychedelic

I remember me and a group of close friends from high school got together one weekend and started trippin’ on shrooms. During the comedown, we were each given a small amount of Suboxone. This really seemed to ease any tension that came from preconceived notions about what a trip should be like! Inter...

Re: How long for tolerance to be reversed?

Of course! Happy to help...or is it Here to Help? Anyways...often times it seems if I simply put it in and close my mouth immediately, the saliva will wash it away. Also, I can’t just take more as it takes so long staring in front of the mirror with my mouth open. Just for 2mg to dissolve. 1mg on ea...

Re: How long for tolerance to be reversed?

I was just trying to go on hiatus for a period of time. Hoping upon return, the medication would be even that much more effective. As I’ve stated in my previous topics, I’ve successfully figured out a way to get the Suboxone film to remain underneath the tongue for hours at a time. This is done by k...

Re: Why can’t you swallow Suboxone Film?

Well, moderator rule62 I wish I could somehow get you to try this method out for me. Doing it this way, I’ve been able to successfully place two thin strips on either side of my tongue. Exactly where the two big veins are. Now here’s the most important part, keep your tongue raised and mouth open. E...

How long for tolerance to be reversed?

So I’ve been taking Suboxone pretty much every day. Thanks to its long half-life, it’s easy to skip a few here and there with no real problems.

However, I would be curious to know how long it takes for tolerance to go back to normal. Is two weeks time the general rule of thumb?

Re: Why can’t you swallow Suboxone Film?

How much do you put between your lips/gum area? Would an entire 8mg strip fit, or do you usually have to cut it into smaller half’s and pieces? After that, how can you tell it’s absorbing right? Do you keep track of it based off of feeling alone? I’m having so many different issues blowing through s...

Why can’t you swallow Suboxone Film?

I’ve heard this same thing about the pill formulation, as well! Something about how the bioavailability of norbuprenorphine is not enough when swallowed as it’s passed through the gut. However, sometimes I have a lot of trouble with placing mine under my tongue/inside of my mouth. I eat so much food...

Re: Taking Suboxone while looking into the mirror

Recent update: I’ve found a way to effectively take it while looking into the mirror. Here’s the method- Start with a 1mg or 2mg piece cut from a 8mg strip. Underneath your tongue, you’ll see there are two larger veins that stick out, and are more prominent than the others. Anyways, you want to focu...

Taking Suboxone while looking into the mirror

Has anyone ever tried this method? I mean it quite literally, as in you’ll have to physically place a portion of the strip directly onto one of the veins underneath your tongue. And then, you watch as it dissolves. It should progressively seep into the vein This has proved useful to me, as of late. ...
