Definitely: The carafate can prevent adequate absorption of other meds. They should either be taken and hour prior or several hours after . it prevents this by coating the absorptive area and thus is blocked from gaining any of the meds or at least part of it .Since you take protonix (pantoprazole) do you need the carafate?
