Carafate is an oral medication made up of sucralfate. Carafate comes in both an oral tablet form and as an oral suspension (liquid). The tablet is available in 1g while the suspension is available in 1g/5ml.

This medication is used to treat ulcers in the intestines. Ulcers are considered a sore; this means that they are an open and painful wound. They can often times cause a person to vomit and can cause very uncomfortable abdominal pain.

Sucralfate works by forming a protective coat around the ulcers so acids, enzymes and bile salts cannot cause further injury resulting in a faster healing process.

Always follow instructions given to you by your doctor.

Use this medication regularly to get the full effectiveness.

Store at room temperature away from heat and moisture.
