It is true that many patients do not like the taste of Suboxone, at least at first. Some people describe Suboxone as having a cross between a minty and sour taste. While most patients quickly get used to the taste, others find it more difficult to adapt.
Tips for getting rid of the Suboxone aftertaste
- The tablets are sometimes described as having less of a strong taste than the strips. If the taste is really bothering a patient, they might have the option of switching to a tablet.
- Eat something a half hour to fifteen minutes before taking Suboxone to ensure the stomach isn’t empty.
- Wash out the mouth or drink some water or beverage about ten to fifteen minutes after the Suboxone strip/tab is fully dissolved.
- Sucking on a lozenge or a piece of candy to clean out the aftertaste.
