Sore Tongue And Mouth From Suboxone

Peaceful Warrior Says:


I need some advice. I started taking Suboxone films last November. I am on 20 mg. a day. Ever since I started these films I noticed that underneath my tongue became sore, like it swelled up and had little bumps underneath. Per my pharmacist, I tried putting it in between my cheek and gum on the bottom, but the same thing happened. It's getting to the point that if I eat anything hot or spicy, it stings like crazy. Even the suboxone stings a little. I don't want to get my whole mouth sore, so I am keeping it underneath the tongue. In the morning my tongue is swelled and it's difficult to talk right, especially saying "s". I told my doctor when it first started happening, but he didn't think much of it. Anyone else have this problem? What should I do?

It is difficult to say why it may be happening, you might just be sensitive to one of the ingredients in it.

However, swelling like that could be dangerous, so you need to talk to your doctor about it, again, immediately! If he doesn't pay attention, then see a different doctor.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hey Peaceful Warrior,
I have been on 12mg of suboxone for a good while and I too have the soreness under my tongue. It is horrible! There is little that can be done, especially since they are wanting, or may have already, phased out the tablets. I never had the problem with the tablets and I took them for years. I actually love the films for their individual packaging, quick dissolve time and better efficacy, but the burning sucks. When I asked my doc about it he asked if I was moistening my mouth first, and I was, so he suggested I may be having a reaction to an ingredient in the film. So unless I want to stop suboxone, which I don't, I will have to deal. But for me, I have gained so much in my life being clean and sober I would not change a thing just to avoid a little discomfort. Its a small price to pay for freedom.

Hello, im no longer taking suboxone/subutex anymore, ive been clean 3 months tomorrow. But i experienced the soreness, redness and lumps under the tongue and also swelling under the flap of my tongue. I was on subutex while pregnant, then suboxone, then back to subutex when i was reducing and got down to my last 8 mg. I had the problem with my tongue and under my tongue the whole entire time i was dosing at the chemist daily. I dosed almost 2 years at 32mg a day. I did notice sometimes when my sub was under my tongue, i would push my tongue down too hard to keep the subs from moving, and if i tried to talk while having my sub under tongue my sores would worsen. They went away before i detoxed when i changed the way i dosed. i.e. not talking till fully disolved and not pressing tongue too hard on subs. Hope you get better, it really is painful i know : )

I've had this happen too, but mostly on the upper tongue. It gets so terrible I can't eat, it is like the afterburn of super spicy food. I thought it could be allergy because I get severe ankle,foot, leg swelling.

Jvfj, I've been on them for 6 months. I had it described that coming off pills is like jumping off a huge mountain and coming off suboxone is like jumping off a mound of dirt. I have also heard that people go down by 1/4 of the dose every 4 days. I've titrated down a bit with no issues. It's gonna be minimal issues for you. Good luck.

Same thing happens with me, but what seems to help is making sure your mouth is not dry when you take it. Make sure you drink enough water to make your mouth moist! Lol! And also make sure you're putting it long ways under on the side of the tongue, as far back as you can get it as soon as you put your tongue down lean forward with your head down till spit comes forward and you should be good.

Hope this helps you

I've been on it twice (subutex pill in between) and it's happened both times, last time it happened I was still new to my clinic and the nurses hadn't seen it as bad as I had it. I've had issues off and on, my mouth either too dry, or too much saliva. The first time this happened to me my nurses checked it every day, and after a couple weeks I was informed my mouth had created another saliva gland in the front near my teeth on the bottom. After it healed though, I had virtually no problems and my issues with my mouth being too dry stopped being such an issue, for obvious reasons. Right now my mouth is even worse than the first time. I'm hoping it just heals with no more bizarre crap, but this time it's worse, and it is awful. Anyway that's my story.
If you're like me, and you produce too much saliva at times and can't use the sides of your mouth easily, IDK how big your strip is, but if your able, I'd cut it into strips and do four, two thin ones each side between your cheek and lower gum. I found it impossible for me to put the strip itself in one piece there without it become a pile of mush. Once it heals though, it won't cause you a problem unless you stop and restart taking it. And if it's a small price, absolutely alternate sides when you return to putting it under your tongue.

Coconut oil (food grade) in a thick layer might offer some relief. I mean just gob it on thick as hell after or before taking your bupe.

Re: Melissa (# 2)

I have the same issue, and so do many others including my friend. We can’t all be allergic!! I think the ingredients are too strong and our skin on our tongues and cheeks are too sensitive to it! It does suck! I’m sorry!

Re: Bash (# 19)
