Carafate is a medication most commonly used to treat ulcers. Carafate is not absorbed by the body through the digestive tract, and mainly works by creating a lining in the stomach by binding to the tissue of ulcer sites and protecting them from acid, bile, salts and enzymes. Carafate is chemically combined with sucrose, sugar, sulfate and aluminum, and is classified as a protectant.
