Reports of bezoar formation has been associated with sucralfate.
Sucralfate forms an insoluble protein-aluminium complex with enteral feeds, resulting in semi-solid aggregates that can block feeding tubes, or even the stomach or esophagus.

Enteral feeds should be stopped at least 1 hour before dose and not restarted for 1 hour post-dose. A longer break may be necessary in patients with delayed gastric emptying. Flush enteral feeding tubes thoroughly with water prior to and after administering doses.
