Why does sublingual mean?
                     




hot_ice20092003
well sublingual means the route of administration of drugs by keeping the medicine under the route and allowing the drug to b absorbed by the mucous membrane and den to b passed into d blood circulation.it is quite faster in action than oral route but much slower den injections.but drugs like praldehyde can't b given orally.


stern_8580
Sublingual means beneath the tongue. The sublingual route of administration of a drug provides an absorption route that bypasses the liver, hence avoiding the first pass effect due to metabolism of the drug by the liver before it reaches the systemic circulation. It also means that more of the drug is available for its effects as compared to the drug being given by the oral route.

Sublingual means "pertaining to under the tongue."


faded_shado
under the tongue, some medications, such as Nitroglycerine tablets are taken sublingually, and temperatures are taken with an oral thermometer sublingually.


Trevor
It means 'beneath the tongue'.

It's often used in the context of medicines that are placed under the tongue.


?
Used in a sentence:

The doctor gave her sub-lingual Morphine. I put one under her tongue to relieve her pain, and two under mine for the same reason.


Ann Toozie
under the tongue. It's a Latin word... sub = under, lingua = tongue
