Sucrain Suspension 100ml
Sucrain Suspension 100ml belongs to a group of medicine called 'ulcer protectants' primarily used to treat peptic ulcers or gastrointestinal ulcers. It also treats hyperacidity, heartburn, indigestion, and gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). The stomach is usually protected from acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity and heartburn. A peptic ulcer is a sore on the stomach's lining or the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). Ulcers or sores of the stomach region are called gastric ulcers, while the duodenum ulcer is known as a duodenal ulcer.
Sucrain Suspension 100ml is a combination of two medicines: Sucralfate and Oxetacaine. Sucralfate is a gastrointestinal protectant that works by forming a protective barrier or coat over the ulcer so that digestive enzymes, acid and bile salts cannot further irritate the lining of the stomach duodenum. This protects the ulcer from the acid of the stomach, allowing it to heal. Besides this, Oxetacaine is a local anaesthetic that exerts a numbing effect, thereby providing relief from pain due to ulcers or acidic injury in the stomach.

Acidity, Heartburn, Stomach ulcer, Duodenal ulcer
Sucrain Suspension 100ml belongs to a group of anti-ulcerants used to treat acidity, heartburn, gas and stomach ulcers. Sucrain Suspension 100ml is a combination of two medicines: Sucralfate (anti-ulcer) and Oxetacaine (Local anaesthetic). Sucralfate works by forming a protective barrier or coat over the ulcer to pepsin and bile and inhibiting gastric acid diffusion. This protects the ulcer from the acid of the stomach, allowing it to heal. It exhibits a cytoprotective effect and forms a viscous, adhesive barrier on the intact intestinal mucosa and stomach surface. It also stimulates the synthesis and release of gastric mucosal prostaglandins and bicarbonate and the epidermal growth factor that stimulates healing and formation of new healthy skin. On the other hand, Oxetacaine exerts a numbing effect, thereby provides relief from pain due to ulcers or acidic injury in the stomach. It does not lose its activity even in strongly acidic conditions and provides prolonged anaesthetic action.

Gastrointestinal ulcer: The stomach is usually protected from acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity. Due to this, acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. Symptoms include heartburn, a sour or bitter taste in the mouth, and difficulty swallowing. Indigestion is the feeling of fullness. It occurs due to slow gastric emptying. Symptoms include stomach pain, bloating, heartburn, nausea and vomiting. A peptic ulcer is a sore on the stomach's lining or the first part of the small intestine (duodenum). Ulcers or sores of the stomach region are called gastric ulcers, while the duodenum ulcer is known as a duodenal ulcer.
