SUBLINGUAL ED PILLS

Sublingual ED pills are pills that are designed to be placed under the tongue.  When a pill is designed in this fashion it is called a troche and is designed to melt and be absorbed under the tongue.

Medications are usually designed as a troche to allow faster and more complete absorption.  Troche may also be referred to as pills, tablets and lozenges.  They are also called fast dissolve tablets or quick dissolve tablets.

While these sublingual troche are made from sildenafil, the same ingredient that Viagra is made from, they are not FDA approved in the sublingual form.  The use of a sublingual troch of sildenafil, a compounded medication, would constitute a legal, but off-label use of an otherwise FDA approved medication.

When a medication is administered sublingually, it is usually more rapidly absorbed and more completely absorbed as compared to the oral route of administration.  Sublingual medications are usually less effected by a recent meal or alcohol consumption.

Sublingual troche of sildenafil should have a similar side effect profile to Viagra, but as this is a relatively new compounded medication and as it is not FDA approved, the side effects and safety profile are not fully known.  There is the possibility that because of the more rapid absorption and onset of action of the sublingual sildenafil troche as compared to oral Viagra, that the side effects may be more severe.  The most common side effects of sildenafil are headache, nausea, nasal congestion and skin flushing.
