In brief: Under tongue
Usually it is placed under the tongue and allowed to dissolve.
It can be given intravenously or by a patch placed on the skin.

In brief: Under the tongue
It depends on the formulation: it can be a pill that you place under the tongue and wait to dissolve, or a spray that you use under the tongue.
The effect should be within 2-3 minutes.
