Abstract

Sublingual means “under the tongue” refers to administrating substances through mouth such that the substance is absorbed rapidly via blood vessels under the tongue. It outweighs orally ingested tablets in rapid onset of action and better patient compliances. The amount of drug absorbed through sublingual blood vessels bypasses hepatic first pass metabolic process giving more bioavailability. These days people lead short period of action so sublingual is the most suitable form of administration. New sublingual technologies address many pharmaceutical and patient desires and convenient dosing for all age groups.


Keywords: Sublingual route and patient compliance, dysphagia, sublingual technologies.
