Compounded Sublingual Medications

A sublingual medication is to be administered under the tongue where it will be absorbed systemically into the bloodstream through the mucous membrane.

Sublingual medications  are available in three delivery systems: 

  • Sublingual drops
  • Troches (Dissolvable)
  • Solutions

The advantages of sublingual medications include: 

  • The on-set of action will be faster due to direct administration
  • To bypass liver metabolism (first-pass metabolism)
  • To ease delivery for those who have trouble swallowing pills
  • To bypass gastrointestinal degradation from stomach acid
