Treatment Of Stomach Acid With Antacids And Sucralfate Drugs?
Tonight, I’m Himawan, my age is 23, I want to ask, I have stomach acid, I like to get sick. The medicine that suits me is Farmacrol forte, 100ml syrup, what is the medicine for nucral sucralfate, 500 ml syrup? night
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
The two drugs that you mentioned are different drugs and the way they work is different. Farmacrol forte is a type of antacid drug that has the function of neutralizing stomach acidity. Sucralfate is a drug that works by coating the mucosa (inner skin layer) of the stomach and protect it from damage due to stomach acid. Antacids are included in over-the-counter medicines that you can buy without using a doctor's prescription, but sucralfate is a hard drug that you should not consume if you have not done a direct examination to the doctor and you should also not be able to buy without a prescription from a doctor.
You should make sure in advance, whether the stomach disorders that you experience are caused by stomach acid disease or not. Gastric acid disease, also called GERD, occurs due to weakness in the gastroesophageal sphincter (a valve between the stomach and esophagus that prevents food and stomach acid from returning to the upper gastrointestinal tract). Sucralfate is clearly not given for acid reflux disease and has more benefit for peptic ulcer disease. If indeed you have not checked yourself into a doctor and do not know for sure what disease you have, you should do a doctor's examination first (do not diagnose your own disease and take your own medication without knowing clearly your disease and the medicine you are taking. ).
If you experience symptoms of gastric disorders such as pain in the gut, bloating, nausea, frequent belching (you experience symptoms of dyspepsia), you may take antacids to relieve these symptoms. If these drugs can not help relieve your symptoms, you should consult a doctor first for further evaluation and management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
