Confer with doctor: Sulcrafate is pretty benign, it is a sort of "covering" for raw and inflamed spots in the digestive tract.. Having reflux is a complex problem, and you may require some testing to answer the question....

Yes: Sucralfate is good for irritation from acid or bile into the esophagus. It coats the esophagus and protects it from further damage and allows for healing.
