for the people that have tried both or just have opinions does one seem to help more then the other like if the pill didnt help as much for someone would trying the liquid be any different?

used this for a very short time. My GI wanted me to have the liquid, but my insurance would only pay for the pill. According to my GI doctor the liquid works much better. He also said that if you use the pill form to add water and make a "slurry" to drink. I wasn't to thrilled about that idea and never tried it. I just took the pill and drank the amount of water recommended.

Take care,

I've used Carafate often, because I have a very reactive stomach. I put the pill into a little medicine cup and added a bit of water. Then I "threw it back". I found it the best way to go. It then coated everything on the way down as well.
Good luck!

Hi Bill! Our sale starts tomorrow, but we let a few of my school friends come in yesterday to buy a few things. The buyers of our house requested that we let them come through before the sale, and they bought a thousand dollars worth. Yikes! They paid asking prices, too. I've got a friend bringing some more stuff tonight, since so much is already sold.
Anyway, still crazy busy. Hope you're doing well.
Take care,
