Q: 

peptic ulcer?

A: 18 Feb 2012 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. http://www.drugs.com/mtm/sucralfate.html Votes:+0CommentVote upReportSearch...
