Regarding Saphris
avatar
An_202964 posted:
I take Saphris, a mood stabilizer along with Paxil for my depression. Since it make me sleepy, my doctor says I can take the entire 30 mg at bedtime, rather than spreading the dose out during the day. I have two questions: 1 - is this medication still effective when i dose it once a day? and 2 - why can't I swallow this medication? It is sublingual but I have no idea why or what difference it makes as to how it gets into your stomach.
Thanks, Maria
