I know the paper on Carafate says it takes 2 hours but the pharmacist said when he used it in the hospital where he worked before, they considered it minutes to an hour. What have your doctors said?
Also, and this may be a dumb question, but if you hungry even if it hasn't been that long, does that automatically mean your stomach is empty? I can see it taking at least 45 minutes but if it should take 2 hours and I am hungry after 45 minutes, isn't that an empty stomach?
Also what is the fastest way to make a sludge? I keep thinking it should be faster than over 5 minutes of soaking a pill. Crushing it and then adding water leaves clumps. Are clumps ok?
I soak the pill and no matter if I think it is disolved, I still find a small part of pill left after taking it.
I'm trying to understand my doctor's and my pharmacist's (mostly the pharmacist's) explanations but still don't feel like I have it down.
Also, is there a way to search for messages by who started a post? Sorry if that last question shouldn't be in this post but I can't find the answer.
Hope everyone is doing well and having pain free days.
