Considered a bandage for the intestinal tract, it provides a coating over ulcers in the GI tract, which helps prevent future damage. It treats ulcers of the esophagus, stomach and small intestine. Veterinarians may also use this medication to treat companion animals. Customers may receive this drug under the name Carafate.
