In brief: Yes

It can be used to prevent recurrent kidney stones in patients with low urinary citrate.
This measurement should be done by a specialized kidney stone laboratory.

In brief: Urocit K (potassium citrate)

Personally, yes, I have prescribed Urocit K for kidney stone prevention and for nephrocalcinosis management.
I find that patients prefer liquid citrate vehicles, such as Bicitra, (citric acid and sodium citrate) Polycitra, ReaLemon Extract, and orange juice, though.
