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.
