In brief: Kidney stones

It really depends on the cause of the stones.
If you have a low citrate level in your urine or have calcium oxalate or calcium phosphorus stones, urocit k (potassium citrate) can help. However for uric acid stones it does not to much.

In brief: Urocit K (potassium citrate)

No. Urocit K (potassium citrate) is excellent.
But it requires a prescription and the practitioner must determine it is necessary and helpful. Most kidney stones are calcium stones with oxalate, and urocit K (potassium citrate) lessens their formation very well. But requires prescription.
