The child suffers from juvenile arthritis and is taking anti inflamatories and analgesics with the known side effects on the system digestivo. He read that this medication sucralfate helps a lot to protect the stomach. I would like an opinion. I want to know if the childrens under 10 years can use this medication. Thanks
