    I swear....I am not a druggie, never have been, but I have HEARD that people put cocaine there to absorb it faster. Ever heard of that. Sorry, may not be what you were looking for, but it's the first thing I thought of.

    THANK YOU! the reason, I was wondering is because I take the liquid B-12 -
    directions: Under the tongue for 30 seconds.
    Well I was wondering should I hold my tongue up or just lay it back down on the meds.
    So.. from what you are saying I should lay my tongue back down.

    Little tricky little technical - funny how I think of things like this .. Hmmmmmmmm

    But seriously - Thanks again!

    Do you ever sleep?? LOL.

    You put it under your tongue to dissolve the pill faster than if you actually swallowed it. Like with Nitroglycerin tablets...as it's dissolving you're swallowing the medicine in your saliva which puts it into your body faster. Those pills start working within 2 minutes. It's not actually being absorbed.

    Does that make sense?

    Default Under the tongue

    When medicine is prescriped to be taken under the tongue so it can absorb into your system faster ...
    Does that mean the part of the body that is absorbing it is the UNDERSIDE of the tongue or the hole part .. when you lift your tongue up, the space that is where the tonuge use to be?

    Clear as mud? LOL
