Urocit-K (potassium citrate) is indicated for the management of several conditions related to kidney stones and renal health. It is specifically used for the following purposes:

  • Kidney Stone Treatment:
    • Urocit-K is a prescription treatment that restores the chemical balance in the kidneys, which helps prevent kidney stones. It is effective in reducing the formation of several common types of kidney stones, including calcium oxalate and uric acid stones.
  • Management of Renal Tubular Acidosis (RTA):
      • Urocit-K is indicated for the management of renal tubular acidosis (RTA) with calcium stones.
  • Hypocitraturic Calcium Oxalate Nephrolithiasis:
      • It is also used for the management of hypocitraturic calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis of any etiology.
  • Uric Acid Lithiasis:
    • Urocit-K is indicated for the management of uric acid lithiasis with or without calcium stones.

In addition to these indications, Urocit-K should be used as part of a comprehensive regimen that limits salt intake and encourages high fluid intake to achieve the desired therapeutic effects.

Do’s

  • Take Urocit-K exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. 
  • Urocit-K should be taken with meals or a bedtime snack as directed by your healthcare provider. 
  • Swallow the Urocit-K tablets whole with a full glass of water or other liquid (8 ounces or 240 milliliters), unless directed otherwise by your healthcare provider. 
  • Your healthcare provider may advise you to follow a low-salt (low-sodium) diet and increase fluid intake while taking Urocit-K. Adhere to their dietary and fluid intake recommendations closely. 
  • Use Urocit-K regularly and take it at the same times each day to maximize its benefits. Consistency in timing is crucial for the medication's effectiveness.
  • While taking Urocit-K, you may need to test the pH (acidity) of your urine using special paper. The pH level will help determine the proper dose. Consult your healthcare provider for more information on this monitoring process.

Don’ts

  • Do not alter the dosage or frequency without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • Do not crush or chew the tablets, as this can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects.
  • After taking the medication, do not lie down for at least 10 minutes. 
  • Avoid taking Urocit-K on an empty stomach.
  • Avoid using salt substitutes that contain potassium unless directed by your healthcare provider.

Common Side Effects:

  • Upset stomach
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea

This is not an exhaustive list of side effects, and individuals may experience other side effects not listed here. If you experience any concerning symptoms while taking Urocit-K, consult a healthcare provider for guidance.

Urocit-K should be stored at room temperature away from light and moisture. Do not store it in the bathroom and keep all medications away from children and pets. Properly discard the product when it is expired or no longer needed.

Urocit-K may interact with various medications, including bronchodilator asthma medication, cold or allergy medicine, diuretics, medications for depression, anxiety, mood disorders, mental illness, overactive bladder, Parkinson's disease, and stomach problems, among others. Inform your healthcare provider about all your other medicines to ensure the safe usage of Urocit-K.

Individuals should inform their healthcare provider about all their drugs (prescription or OTC, natural products, vitamins) and health problems to ensure that it is safe to take Urocit-K with all other drugs and health conditions. Additionally, individuals who are allergic to Urocit-K or any of its components should communicate this to their healthcare provider.

For individuals who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, discuss the use of Urocit-K with a healthcare provider, as its potential impact on an unborn baby is not fully known. Similarly, those who are breastfeeding should seek guidance on the safety of using Urocit-K while breastfeeding.

This is not an exhaustive list of warnings and precautions associated with Urocit-K. Individuals should always consult their healthcare provider for personalized advice and guidance, especially if they have specific health concerns or are taking other medications.
