About ALKASTON ORAL SOLUTION

ALKASTON ORAL SOLUTION is indicated for the treatment of renal tubular acidosis and kidney stones due to low citric acid levels or high uric acid. Kidney stones are small, hard deposits made up of calcium, phosphate and other minerals/acid salts that stick together in concentrated urine. Renal tubular acidosis is a condition in which the kidneys fail to excrete acids into the urine, this causes the blood to remain too acidic.
 
ALKASTON ORAL SOLUTION is a combination of two drugs, namely: Magnesium citrate and Potassium citrate. ALKASTON ORAL SOLUTION raises the urinary pH, potassium, magnesium and citric acid levels; this prevents the crystallisation, growth and accumulation of stone-forming salts.
 
The prescribed dose of ALKASTON ORAL SOLUTION should be diluted with a glass of water and taken after meals/bedtime or as advised by the doctor. You are advised to take ALKASTON ORAL SOLUTION for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you, depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side effects such as abdominal discomfort, diarrhoea, nausea, and vomiting. Most of these side effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side effects persistently.
