A 45-year-old female asked:
can karafate safely be taken with plavix and zantac (ranitidine)? all 3 at the same time

Yes: A quick check of my drug interaction application shows no drug interactions for your 3 drugs. There are some concerns about proton pump inhibitors of stomach acid and plavix. Zantac and carafate (sucralfate) are not proton pump inhibitors.
