What is Sparacid DS?

Sparacid DS is a syrup that contains sucralfate. It’s prescribed to treat stomach ulcers. It works by forming a protective barrier over the ulcer and this protects it from stomach acid that will irritate and exacerbate it.

Sparacid DS also works to reduce the amount of acid produced in your stomach to help with the prevention of ulcers and also the irritation caused to existing ulcers.

Duodenal ulcers can be both painful and inconvenient. They develop in the small intestine and are usually caused by infection with a common germ called H.pylori.

How does Sparacid DS work?

Sparacid DS works in two ways to treat duodenal ulcers and stomach ulcers. Firstly, it coats the ulcer with a protective barrier that prevents stomach acid from irritating it so that it can heal.

Secondly, it reduces the amount of acid produced in the stomach and this not only helps to reduce irritation of the ulcer and speed up healing, but also prevents the flow of acid into the oesophagus. Acid in the oesophagus can cause heartburn.

What doses of Sparacid DS are there?

Sparacid DS is available as an oral suspension in two dosage sizes – 500mg and 1000mg. Your doctor will advise you about the best dose for you to take. They will monitor your progress and make any changes that are needed to ensure that your treatment is effective.

It’s important to take your treatment for as long as your doctor tells you to, this will usually involve taking a dose of Sparacid DS twice a day for between two and four weeks. For patients with more severe symptoms Sparacid is also prescribed to be taken four times a day.

How to take Sparacid DS

Always take Sparacid DS exactly as prescribed by your doctor. You’ll usually be told to:

  • measure an accurate dose of Sparacid DS using the cup supplied
  • take Sparacid on an empty stomach
  • take one hour before eating a meal.

It’s important not to stop taking Sparacid DS until your doctor tells you to, even if you think that it isn’t working. If you have any questions when taking your treatment you can look at the patient information leaflet that’s supplied with it. If you still have questions after reading this you can log into your Treated account and send us a message.

How long does it take Sparacid DS to work?

Sparacid DS can start to offer relief from the symptoms of duodenal and stomach ulcers straight away. You should notice a reduction in acid and associated heartburn after a single dose.

Treatment of the ulcer itself takes a little longer and it can take four to six weeks for an ulcer to heal.

What should I do if I make a mistake when taking Sparacid DS?

If you forget to take a dose of Sparacid DS, you should take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If it’s almost time for you to take your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue to take Sparacid DS as you normally would. Never take a double dose of Sparacid DS.

If you take more Sparacid DS than you should, seek medical attention straight away. When visiting a doctor take your treatment with you so that they can see what you have taken.

FAQ: Sparacid DS

Have something specific you want to know about Sparacid DS? Search our info below, or ask our experts a question if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

How is Sparacid DS different to other treatments for heartburn?

Answer:
Unlike other treatments that are designed only to reduce the symptoms of heartburn by reducing the production of stomach acid, Sparacid DS treats the infection that causes ulcers as well as reducing stomach acid.

A dual approach to treatment means that the ulcer is treated in the long term and its associated symptoms are relieved immediately.

Is Sparacid DS similar to any other treatments?

Answer:
There are other treatments that work in a similar way to Sparacid DS. These treatments will look slightly different due to branding. Other treatments include Sparacid DS are Sucramal, Ulcoat, Sigral Kid, Sufrate Suspension, Pepsigard Gel, Axicralf, Bufare and Ancool SF.

Which dose of Sparacid DS should I use?

Answer:
Your doctor will be able to advise you about the best dose of Sparacid DS to use. The dose recommended will depend on the severity of your symptoms.

Treating a duodenal ulcer can be more complex than just relieving the symptoms of heartburn, and this can play a role in the dose that you’re advised to use and the duration of your treatment.

When used to tackle heartburn caused by excess stomach acid, Sparacid DS works after just the first dose. Treating a duodenal ulcer takes a little longer and full relief and healing can take four to six weeks.

If you find that Sparacid DS doesn’t suit you, or does not work in that way that you need it to, your doctor will be able to help you explore other treatment options.

How effective is Sparacid DS?

Answer:
Treatments, like Sparacid DS, that contain sucralfate provide a very effective treatment for duodenal ulcers and their associated symptoms such as acid reflux and heartburn. Studies show that sucralfate heals over 80% of duodenal ulcers within four weeks when treatment is adhered to.

Do I need a prescription for Sparacid DS?

Answer:
Yes. Sparacid DS needs to be prescribed by a doctor so that they can check that it’s the best treatment for you to try.

You also need to be monitored when taking Sparacid DS so that your doctor can make any changes that are needed to your dose or treatment type.
