This is not uncommon.

First, pts should try not smoking for about 30 minutes prior to SL administration.
Next, pts should drink liquids to moisten their mouth before SL administration.
Zubsolv often dissolves more readily than Film, so try that.
I have, a few times, instructed pts to crush a tablet and then place the powder under their tongue, which can be accomplished with a teaspoon or a paper funnel. The medication in powder can then more easily go into solution.
Hope this helps..
