Sublingual Tablets

Sublingual tablets are those tablets that are placed beneath the tongue where they can dissolve or disintegrate quickly and are absorbed directly without passing into GIT (gastro intestinal tract). When the rapid onset of action is required rather than oral, the sublingual route is a preferable route, due to sublingual tablets can quickly release the drug from the preparation and reach systemic direct circulation, bypassing drug metabolism in the liver and enhanced bioavailability.
