Is headache a likely side effect of sulcrufate? Can you take it long term if needed for LPR (ppi's cause headache)?

In brief: No

Because sucralfate acts inside the GI tract and is not absorbed headache would be an uncommon side effect.
It can be taken long term safely. It is of value in the treatment and healing of superficial damage to injured tissues.
