Can I Take My Medications With Sucralfate?

Theophylline
Sucralfate may bind to theophylline in the digestive tract, decreasing its absorption into the bloodstream (perhaps making it less effective). Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 
Warfarin
Sucralfate may bind to warfarin in the digestive tract, decreasing its absorption into the bloodstream (perhaps making it less effective). Make sure to take warfarin at least two hours before or at least six hours after taking sucralfate. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
 

Final Thoughts

Although most drug interactions can be avoided by separating sucralfate and the other medication by a sufficient amount of time, it is often difficult (or impossible) to do so, as sucralfate is usually taken four times a day. In such situations, it is often best to switch medications (either sucralfate or the other medication) to avoid such problems.
 
It is possible that not all sucralfate drug interactions were discussed in this article. Therefore, you should talk with your pharmacist or healthcare provider about any specific interactions that may apply to you.
