What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

    What is Carafate (sucralfate) Suspension?

    Carafate Suspension Carafate (Sucralfate) Suspension

    Carafate suspension is recommended to treat ulcers present in the intestines. This medication provides a coating over the ulcer to prevent it from further injury thus helping the ulcer to heal quickly.

    Shake the Carafate suspension bottle well before taking each dose. The usual dosage is 1 tablespoon, 4 times a day, at least an hour before a meal. 10 ml of Carafate suspension contains sucralfate 1 gm. Your doctor can recommend the dosage according to your response to treatment and medical condition so make sure to follow his instructions carefully. Take this medication regularly for best results. It may take up to two months for the ulcer to completely heal. Don’t stop taking this medication even if you do not feel any ulcer pain without consulting your doctor.

    There are some medications that may lose their effectiveness when taken with Carafate. If you are taking any other medications inform your doctor to help you make a dosing schedule to get the best results from all your medications. If you are taking antacids, make sure that you have a 30-minute interval between Carafate and the prescribed antacids. Contact your doctor if you do not feel any difference in your condition after taking Carafate for a month.
