Dosing Information

The dose that your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The form of the medication (tablet or suspension)
  • Whether you are treating or preventing ulcers
  • The medical condition being treated
  • Any other medical conditions you may have.
     
As is always the case, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.

Carafate Side Effects

As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Carafate. However, not everyone who takes the drug will experience side effects. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
 
If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious reactions are less common.
 
Constipation is the most common side effect of Carafate.
