What is Urocit used for?
Urocit is potassium citrate, a mineral found in a variety of foods that provides support for several functions of the body, particularly your heart. The citrate belongs to a class of drugs called urinary alkalinizers. Because of this, it’s often used to reduce acidity in the urine, which makes it affective for preventing gout and kidney stones. It’s also used to treat renal tubular acidosis, a kidney stone condition.
