I personally am okay with the slow acting time of Kpins because of the longer half life.
I agree with you. Especially when I have dry mouth, it takes forever for the pill to dissolve. In these cases I will eat 1-2mg and I will take 1-2mg sublingually. I love the minty aftertaste and it makes icigarettes taste like menthol. At least the Atctavis ones do. But it kicks in around the sane tiime that it would if I just ate it. Thats why I mix sublingual with eating them to ensure that I am covered for the day.
