Sucralfate Drug Information

Medication Information: Your stomach normally produces acid to help digest food and kill bacteria. This acid can damage the body's tissues, so some cells in the gastrointestinal tract form a natural inner lining to protect the lining of the stomach and upper intestine (duodenum), which prevents the acid from affecting the body's digestive tissues. There is usually a balance between the amount of acid produced and the mucosal defense barrier. If there is a change in this balance, the stomach wall becomes inflamed (called gastritis) or ulcerated. Sucralfate exerts its effect by forming a protective barrier on the lining of the gastric and duodenal mucosa. This prevents further damage, helps relieve pain, and allows the affected area to heal.
