1 doctor agrees

In brief: Carafate (sucralfate)

This is used to treat ulcers.
It sticks to the ulcer thereby protecting it from the stomach acid and enzymes allowing healing. One could argue that it may have a role in decreasing the pain as it covers/coats the ulcer protecting it. Carafate (sucralfate) is not classed as a pain medication.
