How to use Carafate oral
The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to therapy.
Use this medication regularly in order to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, use it at the same times each day. Keep taking this medication even if you do not feel ulcer pain. Do not stop taking this medication without consulting your doctor. It may take 4 to 8 weeks for your ulcer to heal completely.
Some medications may not work as well if you take them at the same time as sucralfate. They may need to be taken at a different time of the day than the time you take sucralfate. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for help making a dosing schedule that will work with all your medications.
Antacids can be used with this medicine, but they should be taken at least 30 minutes before or after sucralfate.
Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens after you have been taking sucralfate for 4 weeks.
