> Is that by mouth?

Sublingual administration is holding the medication under the tongue which allows a portion of the medication to be transferred directly to the bloodstream by crossing the thin membrane located at the bottom of the mouth under the tongue. One advantage is that this bypasses the gastrointestinal system. Typically a sublingual tablet formulation is used for this type of administration, however in this particular case, Hok is using the liquid form of deprenyl and holding it under his/her tongue. Hok can tell you more about it than I can.
