Does sublingual medication break the fast?

Question: Does administering sublingual medication break the fast?

Sublingual medications are orally disintegrating or dissolving medications that are administered by being placed under the tongue. These medications are transferred to the bloodstream from the mucous membranes in the mouth after dissolving, allowing for quick absorption.[1]

They do not reach the stomach, and therefore do not break the fast.
