I have Crohns and thought that i had some blockage and after multiple tests and finally the scope into the stomach, they found 3 peptic ulcers.
The doctor has me on this drug and the gas pains with this drug is unbelievable!
Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Yeah I had a similar experience with this med. I know its worked good for other people, but for me and my Crohns it made things worse. Good luck!

I have been on Sucralfate for a number of months now, but it is only as needed. I take it for nausea, it really seems to work for me. It is one of few things that help me with the nausea. I have not had any side effects that I am aware of. Sorry I could not be of more help, I hope they find a med that works better for you.
