What is Urocit-K?

Urocit-K, also known as potassium citrate, is a medication that makes urine less acidic. Less acidic urine helps the kidneys get rid of excess uric acid, which helps prevent gout and kidney stones. Gout is a form of arthritis that is caused by excess uric acid in the bloodstream, which causes uric acid crystals to form in the joints. Gout most often affect the feet or toes. Urocit-K belongs to a class of drugs called urinary alkalinizers which can help treat certain metabolic problems as well as kidney disease.

Always read the medication information and instructions before using this medication.

  • Take this medication by mouth.
  • It can be taken with meals or with a bedtime snack.
  • Swallow the medication with a full glass of water, unless your doctor tells you otherwise.
  • Do not chew, crush, or suck the tablets because it can release all the medication at once, which can increase side effects.
  • Do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking this drug.
  • Do not take this medication on an empty stomach.
  • Do not increase your dose unless told to do so by your doctor.
  • Take the drug at the same time each day.

  • Bladder infections
  • Diabetes
  • Low calcium levels

Excess salt may increase your symptoms of gout or kidney disease, so your doctor may direct you to eat a low-sodium diet and drink lots of fluids.

Do not use salt substitutes that contain potassium.

When you are taking this medication, you must test the pH (acidity) of your urine using special paper. The pH of your urine will help determine your dose of Urocit-K.
