Sucralfate Overview

Sucralfate is a medication primarily taken to treat active duodenal ulcers.[2] Sucralfate is also used for the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and stress ulcers.[3] Sucralfate is a sucrose sulfate-aluminium complex that binds to the ulcer, creating a physical barrier that protects the gastrointestinal tract from stomach acid and prevents the degradation of mucus.[4][5] It also promotes bicarbonate production and acts like an acid buffer with cytoprotective properties.[6] ...

I have been using daflon 500 mg since March 25th 4 tablets twice a daily to cure heomorrgiuds and I am feeling much better now but it seems I should continue using this medicin for complete cure. I am wondering for how long I should use it. Thanks for your reply ## Hello, I am working on Sucralfate.

What has your doctor suggested? As to the Sucralfate, we do have a page with some information here: Are there any questions? ## medicine DAFLON 500 mg, is what for? and what ...

I'm currently prescribed 4 sucralfates per day, and 2 omeprazole. The instructions for sucralfate state do not take any other medications within 2 hours of taking this. This makes the windows for taking this extremely small. Is it okay to take both sucralfate and omeprazole together if I ever fall behind? ## Hello, John! How are you? No, it is best to follow the instructions provided with the medication and not take it with anything else. The Omeprazole may affect the absorption of the Sucralfate. Sucralfate is used for the short-term treatment of certain intestinal ulcers. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including dizziness and constipation. Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor that's used to reduce the amount of acid produced by the stomach. Its typical sid...

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. If her pharmacy has given her a tablet, then they have given her the wrong thing. How was the prescription written? 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. You could crush it and put it in something, or just cut it into smaller pieces that you can swallow. This medication is most commonly used to treat active duodenal ulcers and its side effects may include constipation, flatulence, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?
