How to use
Buccastem M tablets should not be swallowed like normal tablets. Instead they should be be placed high up along the top gum, under the upper lip on either side of your mouth. If you wear dentures, the tablet may be placed in any comfortable position between your lip and gum. The tablet will soften and stick to your gum, taking between one and two hours to dissolve completely. The medicine is absorbed into your bloodstream through the rich supply of blood vessels in this area. You shouldn't move the tablet about the mouth with your tongue as this will cause it to dissolve more quickly.
