If the tablet is meant for sublingual use, it dissolves....right?

Dissolve a tablet in a small but precisely known volume of water. The dose is then proportional to the volume of water consumed.

An example would be to dissolve a tablet in 20 drops of water (from an eyedropper). Then each drop of the solution thus prepared would be .1 mg. One drop under the tongue....

Weigh scales that would do what you would like are very expensive, and I think they're monitored by the drug police.

Tricky work, no doubt.
