I am currently taking prilosec & a blood pressure med every morning. My MD has prescribed sucralfate for a peptic ulcer. My question is which should i take first in the morning. There is a 2 hour time frame between the sucralfate and other meds.
It doesn't really matter which one you take first... just separate the doses by 2 to 3 hours. Personally I would probably take the Prilosec and blood pressure medicine first... and then take sucralfate after 3 hours.
Sucralfate is an anti-ulcer medication.
Sucralfate is not greatly absorbed into the body through the digestive tract. It works mainly in the lining of the stomach by adhering to ulcer sites and protecting them from acids, enzymes, and bile salts.
Sucralfate is used to treat an active duodenal ulcer. Sucralfate can heal an active ulcer, but it will not prevent future ulcers from occurring.
