Can Sucralfate and aloe vera juice be taken together?

A friend said she took aloe vera juice mixed with water for stomach issues. I had my gall bladder removed and am having problems. My doctor perscribed Sucralfate. After one and half days it was worse, so I stopped. Is Aloe vera safe and in what quantities?

Hello,

I think you should be more carefull with your diet since you have removed your gall bladder. You should eat less amount of food and more often in a day.

Now the body absorbs fats not so easily and fast as before and these would cause problems if you eat food full of fats and in a large amount. I don't think aloe vera has something to do with these problems but its also not bad using it if it makes you feel better.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Anila Skenderi
