Gerd is often associated with hiatal hernias and this can be repaired with anti-reflux surgery. ...Read more

Is Carafate (sucralfate) also good at healing esophageal damage from acid reflux?

No really: Carafate (sucralfate) is good at helping ulcers heal. If you have ulceration in your esophagus from acid reflux, then it might help. If you just have inflammation (aka "reflux esophagitis") then carafate (sucralfate) is generally a waste of time and money. It's really difficult to take (4 times per day) so I only advise my patients in whom I suspect ulcers to take carafate (sucralfate). ...Read more
