So sulcrufate is rarely approved long term? How about for bile reflux? For lpr? For acid reflux? Esp. If diet fails?

In brief: Confer with doctor

Sulcrafate is pretty benign, it is a sort of "covering" for raw and inflamed spots in the digestive tract.
. Having reflux is a complex problem, and you may require some testing to answer the question....

In brief: Yes

Sucralfate is good for irritation from acid or bile into the esophagus.
It coats the esophagus and protects it from further damage and allows for healing.
