I was not familiar with this product, but I looked it up on the web and it appears to be a urinary tract anesthetic, which might make you feel better temporarily, but will not dissolve your stone. Most stones are NOT dissolvable.  Most small (5mm is small) NON OBSTRUCTING stones are asymptomatic.  I would want to check that your urine CULTURES are truly showing an infection.

US is not a super accurate way to measure the size of a stone, so I would probably have you get a simple abdominal X-ray.  If the stone is truly 4.9mm, it is passable without surgery, and the most effective medication to help it along is called tamsulosin (Flomax).
