taste of suboxent
Ok, I know that anyone who has taken suboxene knows this horrific taste well. What I want to know is this, is there any alternatives to taking this medicine. More specifically, I know this may gross some of you out, but can you mix it with water and insert it anally. I know you have a lot of blood vessels down there and so I would think it would be basically the same as putting it under your tongue, as far as the pills effectiveness goes.  I can't hardly stand the taste, and although I know there's a lot of people out there that would rather deal with the taste than put medicine up their hind end, I ain't one of those people. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Oh and everything I've read about suboxene is that it is suppose to dissolve within 5-10 minutes. I haven't got one to dissolve any less that 20 min, with the average being around 30 min. Am I doing something wrong? I've tried drinking something before i take it and that help some. That's how I was able to shave 10 min off the usual time.

SORRY that should have been "helped some" in the previous post. I may be an addict but I believe in being a grammatically correct addict.

This is how Dr. Junig recommends taking Suboxone. It may make things go quicker.

You want to make sure that there is good absorption from the mouth-- I recommend a technique where you crush the tab with your front teeth and dissolve it in a very small amt of saliva, and then 'paint' the inside of your mouth completely. To maximize absorption you want 1. a small amt of saliva, so that you have a high concentration of buprenorphine; 2. as much surface area as possible in the mouth-- NOT just under the tongue; 3. enough time for absorption to occur-- 10 minutes of constant 'painting and repainting' the surfaces with your tongue; 4. no eating or drinking for 15 minutes after a dose, so you don't rinse it away. Do these things and you will get good absorption of buprenorphine.
