Sucralfate is used to treat ulcers of the esophagus, stomach, or small intestine. Sucralfate is a gastric protective. It works by forming a protective layer on the ulcer to serve as a barrier against acid, bile salts, and enzymes in the stomach. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
