The title says it .. I'm on a high daily dose (24mg), which I receive crushed into powder/small chunks of tablet (it's the way they do it in this part of Australia). As the powder dissolves, I'm left with a mouthful of saliva that's still very bitter, indicating that there's still a lot of bupe left unabsorbed after the dose is 'gone'. How long do others keep this saliva under their tongue before swallowing it? I assume swallowing it while it's still bitter means that an unknown quantity of the drug is going to the stomach, rendering it useless.
At the same time, I can keep the shit in my mouth for an hour and it's still bitter, and it's at that point that I usually give up and swallow it (so I can have a smoke, if nothing else!).
How do others on bupe go about maximising the effectiveness of their dose, and/or how long do you keep the solution under your tongue before swallowing?
