Buckle tablet (Not sure if the spelling is correct).

Can anyone explain what a buckle tablet does? Dad is in hospital after heart attack,he complained of chest pain and staff gave him gtn spray which knocked him for six,he felt terrible after it,so they gave a buckle tablet to put in the corner of his mouth and told him it would take about two hours to dissolve,anyway he said this tablet was fantastic,felt he could have lapped the hospital.I was going to ask the staff about it but they were busy so I didn't want to bother them. Thanks.

Buccal tablet. It`s one that dissolves through the gums. I guess that`s where buccastem gets it`s name from. You could google it (buccal tablets not buccastem)

^James.
both the spray and the buccal (trans mucosal) tablets work very quickly - one getting straight into the bloodstream via the lungs, on vis the mucousal membranes often the buccal tablets will work better because it's very easy to swallow the spray instead of inhaling it
oh you poor thing. i hope dad improves quickly.
