How to take your sublingual and buccal tablets

These types of tablets are not the regular ‘swallow with a glass of water’ tablets. Here are a few tips      

  • Sip some water to moisten the mouth               
  • Sublingual tablets: place under the tongue               
  • Buccal tablets: place tablet between cheek and the lower or upper gum               
  • Close your mouth and do not swallow until the tablet has dissolved completely               
  • Avoid hastening the process by moving the tablet around the mouth, chewing or swallowing.         
  • Do not rinse mouth for several minutes.

Remember to always read drug labels on how to use your medications safely.
