Urocit K for the prevention of kidney stones?
I was just put on some of that.. anything i need to know? Is anybody here taking it? Asked by Viki Hunsicker 1 year ago.

Hi Lasey B, urocit K 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. You need know , that many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. But also, this drug may cause serious stomach or intestinal problems (e.g., bleeding, blockage, puncture). Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: abdominal swelling, black/bloody stools, constipation, dizziness, fast heartbeat, severe stomach/abdominal pain, difficult/painful swallowing, severe vomiting, vomit that looks like coffee grounds. This medication may cause high potassium levels in the blood (hyperkalemia). Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: muscle cramps/weakness, severe dizziness, slow/irregular heartbeat, mental/mood changes (e.g., confusion, restlessness), tingling of the hands/feet, unusually cold skin. A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, seek immediate medical attention if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including: rash, itching, swelling, severe dizziness, trouble breathing. Jason Homan Answered by Brice Stay 1 year ago.

kidney stones are created by not taking in enough calcium. one of the jobs of the kidney is to conserve calcium, a critical mineral to many functions in the body, especially the nervous system. The Product specialist for a vitamin company errs in his comments. You can disolve stones by shocking the ph of the urinary tract. It is not pleasant, but here is how you do it. In one sitting, drink 72 oz of regular Coca Cola Follow with a can of asparagus (plain, no sauce, no cheese) Eat the all or the asparagus. This combination alters the ph of the urinary tract and disolves the stone Answered by Erlinda Pallotto 1 year ago.


Does anyone else take urocit-k for kidney stones?
if so does it make you urinate more ...i have been taking them for 2 days and ive been peeing all the time...and i have been getting hot flashes my face feels hot Asked by Georgianne Krammes 1 year ago.

Urocit-k is taken to prevent the formation of stones, usually 2-3 times a day. It is possible that the increase in the potassium level might cause the symptoms you describe but unusual. You should really notify your MD of this and you may need to either decrease the dosage or stop the medication esp. since these just started. Call him. Good luck. Answered by Van Urbani 1 year ago.

Is it bad to take potassium chloride with potassium citrate?
I was in the hospital taking my own potassium citrate rx urocit-K(to prevent kidney stones) which they knew about. Somehow they miscommunicated and had me on IV potassium chloride drip. Just curious if I was in any danger for heart problems, or getting another kidney stone from the salt drip. Asked by Dagmar Sonka 1 year ago.

Urocit K contains 10 meq of potassium. So you had supplemental because you were low on blood tests. This 10meq amount is really quite small. Next time, be sure to tell them this also contains potassium. Doctors tend to not be concerned about your past records, probably don't realize they could just read to avoid errors like this. This was certainly your doctor's error, but your nurses or pharmacist are supposed to catch it too. So you have to remind the person who is prescribing things for you. There was really no miscommunication. The doctor just ignores what you tell them. You have to make the doctor pay attention. IV versions will absorb far better than a pill, you know.

Why such a price difference between pharmacies?
My husband takes the generic version of Urocit-K. It used to cost about $30, but it doubled to $65. This is at our local hometown pharmacy. However, I found out he can get it at Wal-Mart pharmacy for only $23 (same amount of pills, same strength). Why such a price difference between pharmacies? (just curious) Asked by Ona Iachetta 1 year ago.

Remember overhead and also remember that WalMart buys meds and everything else by the train car load which makes it ridiculously cheaper. No local can compete price wise. Answered by Linda Brotherton 1 year ago.
