Sucralfate is employed for the treatment and prevention of duodenal ulcers, which are ulcers located in the first part of the small intestine. In some cases, additional medications like antibiotics may be required to address and prevent the recurrence of ulcers caused by a specific type of bacteria. Classified as a protectant, sucralfate operates by adhering to damaged ulcer tissue, forming a protective barrier against acid and enzymes. This protective action facilitates the healing process.

Uses and Dosage

Make sure to shake the bottle thoroughly before each dose. Take this medication orally on an empty stomach, usually four times daily and at least 1 hour before a meal, as instructed by your doctor. The dosage is determined by your medical condition and your response to the treatment.

For optimal benefits, use this medication regularly and take it at the same times each day to help you remember. Even if you don’t experience ulcer pain, continue taking this medication unless your doctor advises otherwise. Complete healing of your ulcer may take between 4 to 8 weeks.

Some medications may not work effectively if taken simultaneously with sucralfate. You may need to schedule them at different times of the day than when you take sucralfate. Consult your doctor or pharmacist to create a dosing schedule that accommodates all your medications.

While antacids can be used alongside this medicine, ensure they are taken at least 30 minutes before or after sucralfate.

If your condition persists or worsens after 4 weeks of sucralfate treatment, inform your doctor promptly. It’s important to keep your healthcare provider updated on your progress.
