How To Consume Sublingual Tablets?
I want to ask whether the buccal tablet is always placed between the cheek and gum?
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Buccal tablets are also called sublingual tablets, which are drugs that are used by placing them in the mouth (between the cheeks and gums and under the tongue) without being swallowed. Absorption of the drug occurs in blood vessels in the mouth. The use of buccal or sublingual tablets is suitable for drugs that cannot be processed and absorbed by the digestive tract.
Some medicines that have buccal tablets include hormonal-containing drugs, lowering blood pressure and several other drugs.
Sumatriptan is a serotonin class of drugs that works to relieve migraine symptoms of acute attacks and headaches. This drug has oral tablet preparations, subcutaneous injection / injection, and nasal spray. Tablet preparations on sumatriptan are not used buccal or sublingually.
Always pay attention to the dosage of medication according to doctor's recommendation. Be aware of side effects such as allergies, chest pain, weighty headaches, muscle aches, etc. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
