Hey Ashraf,

The US equivalent for Gastrofait is Sucralfate. The literature explains the following:

Sucralfate is indicated in:

•Short-term treatment (up to 8 weeks) of active duodenal ulcer. While healing with Sucralfate may occur during the first week or two, treatment should be continued for 4 to 8 weeks unless healing has been demonstrated by x-ray or endoscopic examination.
•Maintenance therapy for duodenal ulcer patients at reduced dosage after healing of acute ulcers.

So yes, maintenance therapy for continued relief from ulcers is indicated.

Hope this helps,

Laurie
