UROCIT-K Tablet (1X30)
Urocit-K (potassium citrate) extended-release tablets are a prescription medicine used in the management of two common types of kidney stones: calcium oxalate stones and uric acid stones. Urocit-K can also help treat certain metabolic problems (acidosis) caused by kidney disease.
This medication is used to make the urine less acidic. This effect helps the kidneys get rid of uric acid, thereby helping to prevent gout and kidney stones. This medication can also prevent and treat certain metabolic problems (acidosis) caused by kidney disease. Citric acid and citrate salts (which contain potassium and sodium) belong to a class of drugs known as urinary alkalinizes. If you have a condition that requires you to limit your intake of potassium and sodium, your doctor may direct you to take a product that is lower in potassium and sodium.
Nausea, vomiting, diarrheal, and stomach pain may occur. Taking it after meals will help prevent these side effects. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
An empty tablet shell may appear in your stool. This is harmless because your body has already absorbed the medication.
Remember that your doctor has prescribed this medication because he or she has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.
