In brief: Yes
Sucralfate serves more of a "coating" function for the stomach so it may help with your symptoms and worth a try.
You may also wish to try some neutralizing agents like Tums or bicarbonate (sodium bicarbonate) containing antacids. Some alternative/natural agents also include manuka honey, parsley extract, ginger root, among others may also help. Make sure you have been evaluated for h pylori.
