Carafate, also known as sucralfate, is indicated to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines. Carafate works by forming a protective coating over the ulcer site. This coating shields the ulcer from further irritation and promotes healing more quickly.
  • Take Carafate by mouth on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before a meal, as directed by your healthcare provider, usually 2 to 4 times daily.
  • The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment.
  • Use Carafate regularly at the same times each day to get the most benefit from it.
  • Continue taking Carafate even if you do not feel ulcer pain, unless directed otherwise by your healthcare provider. It may take 4 to 8 weeks for your ulcer to heal completely.
  • Some medications may not work as well if taken at the same time as Carafate. They may need to be taken at a different time of the day. Consult your healthcare provider or pharmacist for help in creating a dosing schedule that works with all your medications.
  • Antacids can be used with Carafate, but they should be taken at least 30 minutes before or after taking Carafate.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if your condition lasts or gets worse after taking Carafate for 4 weeks.
