Suboxone film slippiong over the tongue

Most of the time when I take the suboxone films, the film will end up slipping up over the top of my tongue. I don't think I'm lifting my tongue properly before placing the film.

Just wondering if I am still getting absorption into me and by how much percentage. As a precaution, I've been taking some oxy every day because of this but do I really need to be doing so?

Please help if you can. I have heard you can place it at the roof of your mouth ( hard gums), that it will work that way too.

I've not taken subs although I've had other sublingual meds - you take it under the tongue - then you hold it in place with your tongue til it dissolves.

I'm not sure how it slips out from there?

I'd go ask my dr for advice - he might be able to prescribe a form you can take more easily?

I understand wanting to be sure you won't feel poorly but taking oxys seems to defeat the purpose to me.

My doctor told me I could put film inside cheek....seem to work OK, but I do think under the tongue worked more effectively.
