Product Overview

Macralfate Suspension is a medication containing the active ingredient Sucralfate. It is formulated as a suspension, making it easy to administer orally. Macralfate works locally in the stomach to form a protective coating over ulcers and irritated tissues, promoting healing and providing relief from symptoms such as pain and discomfort. This medication is commonly prescribed for the treatment of ulcers in the stomach and upper gastrointestinal tract.


Macralfate Suspension is primarily used to treat ulcers caused by conditions such as gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, or gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). It works by adhering to the surface of ulcers and erosions, forming a protective barrier that shields them from stomach acid, digestive enzymes, and other irritants. By creating a favorable environment for healing, Macralfate helps to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and promote tissue repair.

How to Use

Shake the Macralfate Suspension well before each use to ensure uniform distribution of the medication. Measure the prescribed dose using the provided dosing syringe or measuring spoon and administer it orally. For best results, take Macralfate on an empty stomach, at least one hour before or two hours after meals, and at bedtime. Do not mix the suspension with other liquids or foods, as this may affect its effectiveness. Follow the dosage instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

How it Works

The active ingredient in Macralfate, Sucralfate, interacts with proteins in the ulcer crater to form a thick, viscous gel-like substance. This gel adheres to the surface of the ulcer, creating a physical barrier that protects it from gastric acid, pepsin, and bile salts. By shielding the ulcer from further damage and providing a conducive environment for healing, Macralfate helps to promote the resolution of ulcers and improve symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disorders.

Dosage and Administration

The dosage of Macralfate Suspension may vary depending on the severity of the ulcer and individual patient response. Typically, the recommended dose for adults is 1 gram (10 mL) four times daily, on an empty stomach and at bedtime. Dosage adjustments may be necessary in patients with impaired renal function or those receiving concomitant therapy with certain medications. It is important to complete the full course of treatment as prescribed by your healthcare provider, even if symptoms improve before the ulcer is completely healed.

Common Side Effects

Common side effects of Macralfate Suspension may include constipation, dry mouth, nausea, vomiting, flatulence, and diarrhea.

In rare cases, allergic reactions such as rash, itching, or difficulty breathing may occur and require immediate medical attention.


Macralfate Suspension should be used with caution in patients with renal impairment, as it may accumulate in the body and lead to adverse effects. It is important to monitor renal function regularly during treatment. This medication may interfere with the absorption of certain drugs, such as tetracycline antibiotics, digoxin, and phenytoin, so it is advisable to administer them at least two hours apart. Macralfate should not be taken concurrently with other medications unless approved by a healthcare provider.
