SIDE EFFECTS

Postmarketing Experience

Some patients may develop minor gastrointestinal complaints during Urocit®-K (potassium citrate extended-release tablets) therapy, such as abdominal discomfort, vomiting, diarrhea, loose bowel movements or nausea. These symptoms are due to the irritation of the gastrointestinal tract, and may be alleviated by taking the dose with meals or snacks, or by reducing the dosage. Patients may find intact matrices in their feces.
