In brief: Hello.

Hello. Some medictions are absorbed in the mouth and stomach, but most are asborbed throught the intestines.
The meds travel from the intestines into the blood. The hepatic portal system feeds blood to the liver. The metabolites of the medication go from the liver back into the blood again.
