Sucralfate Syrup– Sucralfate is a medication found in KASTCID-S that is used to treat intestinal and stomach ulcers. Sucralfate coats the ulcer or any other exposed area. This forms a physical barrier that protects the ulcer/raw surface from stomach acid and other potential injuries, allowing it to heal. Sucralfate is a member of the gastrointestinal class of medications known as “ulcer protectants,” which are generally used to prevent or treat peptic ulcers or gastrointestinal ulcers.
