About Sucratab-O Suspension

Sucratab-O Suspension is 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.

Sucratab-O Suspension 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.

It is better to take Sucratab-O Suspension an hour before a meal or without a meal for its best results. Your doctor will advise you on how often you take Sucratab-O Suspension based on your medical condition. Some people may experience common side effects like constipation, dizziness, sleepiness, dry mouth, blurred vision, and diarrhoea. Most of these side effects of Sucratab-O Suspension do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. However, if the side effects persist or worsen, please consult your doctor.

If you are known to be allergic to Sucratab-O Suspension or active and inactive ingredients present on it, please tell your doctor. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is advised to consult a doctor before using Sucratab-O Suspension . Sucratab-O Suspension should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Try not to stop taking Sucratab-O Suspension of your own. Stopping a sudden intake of Sucratab-O Suspension will not influence the frequency or severity of future ulceration. Avoid taking aluminium and magnesium-containing antacids with Sucratab-O Suspension . Aluminium-containing antacids and Sucratab-O Suspension could lead to constipation and intestinal obstruction, whereas magnesium-containing antacids might cause diarrhoea.  Avoid consuming alcohol along with Sucratab-O Suspension as it could lead to increased acidity.

Uses of Sucratab-O Suspension

Treatment of Acidity, Heartburn, Stomach ulcer, Duodenal ulcer.

Medicinal Benefits

Sucratab-O Suspension belongs to a group of anti-ulcerants used to treat acidity, heartburn, gas and stomach ulcers. Sucratab-O Suspension  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 providing 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.

Disease/Condition Glossary

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.
