my mother takes Sucralfate suspension, she is unable to swollow it in tablet form due to an oesophogeal stricture, is there another similar preparation? ## Well, if she has been prescribed a suspension, that should be a liquid formulation.

Is her doctor aware of her swallowing difficulties? ## Is SucralFate derived from Sucralose? Does it have the components of Sucralose? I had a severe allergic reaction to it and it seems, now, I have hives if I get a tiny bit of sucralose in my system since I had the allergic reaction to Sucralfate. Is there any relation to it? Is it made of sucralose? ## I TOOK SUCRALFATE AND AM ALLEGIC TO IT CANNOT NOT TAKE IT. WHAT CAN I DO T.O SPEED ...

I choke and can't swallow this big tablet. Can I crush it and melt it into a liquid and take it with water or juice? I have tried to crush it and still choke on it's crumbs. ## Hello, Jean! How are you? Yes, this medication isn't time released, so there shouldn't be any problem with doing that, unless your pharmacist says otherwise.
