The dang thing went under my tongue alright but then it got way back there and I lost it. I spit, rinsed, everything I could do but I never saw it come out. I just gave up. Can it hurt me to swallow it?
When you don't get it under the tongue it doesn't get into your system in the same way it's supposed to. It will probably take longer to get into your system.
I hope you get your VPAP on so you can breath properly. All of these drugs suppress your respiratory system. Hope it all goes well.
I am so dumb about some things and take them literally
I put another one of the Suboxone under my tongue and lost it again. I called up the pharmacist to see if swallowing it would hurt me, how embarrassing, I did it right both times, I put it under my tongue and then it dissolves completely. The directions were trying to say not to put it in your mouth and just swallow the dang thing but to put it under the tongue where it goes pretty much directly into the bloodstream through the veins under the tongue. I thought it meant that a piece of plastic would be left over that I wasn't suppose to swallow
Also I noticed on another post in another thread that I wrote dyke when I meant dike
The English language is not exactly easy is the only excuse I can come up with
As far as the VPAP the hospital sent me fresh supplies today for the VPAP machine including filters, a new mask, new hose, new nose pillows, the whole works, I am very glad I have insurance. Also the Suboxone would have cost me $190 USD but I pay $22 with insurance, if it wasn't a name brand it would have been $5 but I'm not complaining. I won't even mention how much Lyrica is, it is so much I doubt anyone would believe me (unless they purchase it themselves).
