Of course I can. Sucralfate is an antiulcer agent which is used for short=term management of duodenal ulcers. It covers an ulcer like a band-aid. It protects the ulcer from stomach acid which allows for it to heal. Some side effects include dizziness, constipation, dry mouth, etc.
The doctor says I have an active duodenal ulcer and has prescribed me sucralfate. I've never heard of it before. Could you please tell me about this and how it's suppose to help me?
Sulcralfate should be given 60 minutes before or after taking any antacids. According to my Lewis textbook, this medication binds with cimetidine, digoxin, warfarin, phenytoin, and tetracycline, which reduces their absorption/effectiveness (2017). It is important to let us know if you are currently taking or will be taking any of those medications I just mentioned.
My pleasure. You have a blessed day sir.
I appreciate all the information you have provided me with. It's nice to know what I'm taking and how it works. You have a great day ma'am.
