How long should you wait to drink/eat after taking a Suboxone film?

Not Medical Advice: It is recommended that you wait 30 minutes after using Suboxone film to eat or drink. Suboxone is used to treat opioid dependence. It is estimated that it takes 15 minutes for absorption of Suboxone into the tissue and capillaries to occur, but some can remain on the surface for a bit longer.

Waiting 30 minutes to eat will maximize the absorption of the drug. Experts recommend drinking a glass of water to moisten your mouth before using the film.

A recent Daily Mirror poll revealed that 75% of people believe the government has lost the war on drugs. The deaths of five young people from a rogue batch of ecst@sy is believed to have put the battle on drugs back in the spotlight.
