Antepsin tablets and suspension contain the active ingredient sucralfate, which is a complex of aluminium hydroxide and sulphated sucrose.
Sucralfate is what’s known as a ‘coating’ agent, as it forms a paste when it is activated in the body. In its standard form, this happens in the stomach, where it forms a coating over ulcers, shielding the tissue from further damage and helping them heal. Medically, it is used to aid healing of ulcers in the stomach and intestine (peptic ulcers).
Sucralfate 1g/5ml oral suspension sugar free (antepsin)
