I just take potassium citrate to help with my kidney stones. Potassium citrate is actually prescribed for kidney stones, but the prescription strength version is 400 mg. Potassium citrate can be purchased over the counter, but non-prescription strength is limited to 99 mg, so you have to take several of them. Since I started taking it I haven't had a single stone (knock on wood!).I use a lot of aspartame in Crystal Light lemonade that I drink to help minimize kidney stones. The theory being that the potassium citrate in the lemonade mix raised the pH of my urine to dissolve and/or prevent formation of uric acid kidney stones.
