Can Medication For Stomach Ulcers Be Taken Together?
I want to ask, if you can take mucosta, sucralfate and lansoprazole?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Lansoprazole is a class of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) that are useful for suppressing the process of stomach acid formation. When compared with other drugs, PPIs have proven to be the most effective coping
symptoms and heal wounds on the gastric mucosa. PPI is generally given in the morning before breakfast as much as one dose per day.
Mucosta contains rebamipide which is a gastric protective agent. In addition to providing better protection to the stomach wall, rebamipide can also accelerate wound healing in the stomach wall. Rebamipide consumption is recommended by combining it with offensive factor inhibitors including PPI. Consumption of rebamipide 3 times a day both before or after meals.
Whereas sucralfate functions as a protective mucosa of the stomach to prevent further irritation due to stomach acid. Sucralfate therapy for chronic gastric inflammation cases and ulcers in the stomach can be given within 4-8 weeks or up to 12 weeks if needed. Sucralfat is given 3-4 times in adults before meals.
We recommend that you give the distance between the use of sucralfate with other drugs because it can reduce the effectiveness of other drugs. For example 1 hour before eating you consume sucralfate, then 30 minutes after that you can take lansoprazole and rebamipide, or rebamipide after eating. If you are in doubt, you should consult again with the treating doctor for the appropriate rules of use.
That's all, hope you can help. Wassalam
