Crafilm Chewable Tablets
(Sucralfate + Calcium Carbonate)
A Quick Relief for Heart Burn & Flatulence
Crafilm Chewable® is a proven therapy for a myriad of gastrointestinal problems causing indigestion, acidity and heartburn. It is a gastric mucosal protectant that works by forming a barrier against gastric acid, enzymes and salts. It is indicated in:
