Sulcrate How to Take

Sulcrate (Sucralfate) belongs to the class of medications called gastroduodenal cytoprotective agents. Sulcrate (Sucralfate) is used to treat duodenal and stomach ulcers and to prevent duodenal ulcers. The liquid form of Sulcrate (Sucralfate) is also used to prevent bleeding due to stress ulcers in people who are critically ill. It works by forming a coating over the ulcer. This coating protects the ulcer from stomach acid, allowing it to heal.

Sulcrate Precautions

There may be an interaction between Sulcrate (Sucralfate) and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Sulcrate (Sucralfate). Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Sulcrate Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Sulcrate (Sucralfate).

Chronic kidney failure (dialyzed patients): Sulcrate (Sucralfate) should be used with caution by people with chronic kidney failure. When Sulcrate (Sucralfate) is taken by mouth, small amounts of aluminum are absorbed from the stomach wall. This may lead to aluminum accumulation. People with normal kidney function are at lower risk for this problem. People with impaired kidney function should be cautious when taking other aluminum-containing medications (e.g., certain antacids) while they also take Sulcrate (Sucralfate).

Diabetes: People with diabetes have reported high blood sugar levels while taking Sulcrate (Sucralfate) because the liquid form of Sulcrate (Sucralfate) contains carbohydrate. It is important for people with diabetes to monitor their blood sugar levels while taking Sulcrate (Sucralfate) liquid.

General: Because Sulcrate (Sucralfate) does not treat the underlying cause of ulcers, an ulcer may come back after Sulcrate (Sucralfate) treatment.

Pregnancy: Sulcrate (Sucralfate) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Sulcrate (Sucralfate), contact your doctor immediately.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Sulcrate (Sucralfate) have not been established for children and adolescents under 18 years of age. The use of Sulcrate (Sucralfate) by this age group is not recommended.
