I have been taking carafate suspension 2x daily for over a month. I am also taking omperozle 40mg 2x daily. I am still vomiting at least twice a week. I am wondering how long it will take to feel relief.
My symptoms started in August last year. I was vomiting daily, multiple times a day. My primary care doctor thought I had acid reflux and prescribed sulcrafate and omperozle. I quit taking the sulcrafate because I felt that it never dissolved. I started seeing a GI doc. I have had an abdominal ultrasound, HIDA scan, endoscopy (which showed an ulcer and stomach erosion). I was still vomiting, so I had a CT Scan of the abdomen. By the end of december, I had lost over 30 lbs. I finally had it out with my GI doc and that was when he asked me if I wanted the liquid version of sulcrafate. I really wished he had told me that back in August. However, I still have issues with vomiting.

Have you tried Metaclopramide (Reglan) for some temporary relief?

Also, Carafate and Gaviscon made my nausea much much worse but it took me ages to work that out!!

Is your gall bladder in the clear?
