Hello,

Ok, carafate doesn't get into you; it isn't absorbed. It binds to stuff and can pull out nutrients maybe and certainly can stick to medications, but it can't get in and can't get to the brain. if there were an allergy to it, there would be digestive symptoms like diarrhea.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr. Matt Wachsman
