On this episode, I discuss (Carafate) sucralfate pharmacology, adverse effect, kinetics, and drug interactions.
Sucralfate is notorious for drug binding interactions and can reduce the concentrations of many drugs which I cover in the podcast.
Four times daily dosing is a big downside to sucralfate and why it isn’t used terribly often for GI issues like esophagitis.
The suspension formulation of sucralfate does contain some sugar so be aware of this in our diabetes patients.
