Antacids / Gastric Products

SKU: 535273

Carafate tablets 1g are used to treat acute, non-malignant peptic ulcers of the stomach (gastric ulcers) and of the small intestine (duodenal ulcers), which are caused by excess secretion of gastric acid, which is produced by the stomach to aid digestion. Peptic ulcers are usually secondary to infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, and this damages the lining of the stomach or small intestine, allowing it to be further damaged by gastric acid. Using Carafate tablets 1g allows ulcers to heal reducing symptoms of indigestion, pain and bloating. Carafate tablets 1g are also used as maintenance therapy to prevent the recurrence of duodenal ulcers.
