How can I make Suboxone absorb better?

Each film comes in a separate sealed pouch. Keep the pouch in a room temperature environment prior to use. Do not open the pouch until you are ready to use it. Hold it by the edges to prevent breaking. To help increase Buprenorphine/naloxone (Suboxone) absorption, when you place your film or tablet under your tongue, make sure you keep it in place until it is fully dissolved - this can take several minutes. Try not to move it around in your mouth before it is fully dissolved. Do not chew or swallow it. Don't eat or drink anything 15 minutes before or 15 minutes after taking.
