Sucralfate

Descriptions

Sucralfate is used to treat and prevent duodenal ulcers. This medicine may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Sucralfate works by forming a ``barrier'' or ``coating'' over the ulcer. This protects the ulcer from the acid of the stomach, allowing it to heal. Sucralfate contains an aluminum salt.

This medicine is available only with your doctor's prescription.

This product is available in the following dosage forms:

  • Suspension
  • Tablet

How to use Sucralfate

Take this medicine by mouth, usually 2 to 4 times daily, on an empty stomach at least 1 hour before a meal, or as directed by your doctor.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.

PRECAUTIONS

The physician should read the “ PRECAUTIONS ” section when considering the use of CARAFATE Oral Suspension in pregnant or pediatric patients, or patients of childbearing potential.

Duodenal ulcer is a chronic, recurrent disease. While short-term treatment with sucralfate can result in complete healing of the ulcer, a successful course of treatment with sucralfate should not be expected to alter the post healing frequency or severity of duodenal ulceration.

Episodes of hyperglycemia have been reported in diabetic patients. Close monitoring of glycemia in diabetic patients treated with CARAFATE Oral Suspension is recommended. Adjustment of the anti-diabetic treatment dose during the use of CARAFATE Oral Suspension might be necessary.
