Need more info: What kind of stones do you have? It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor. If you are not deficient in calcium and/or vitamin D, you may be better off avoiding the supplement.
In either case drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless to avoid further stone formation.
Wish you good health!
