What is Bicitra?

Cytra-2 500 mg-334 mg/5 mL Oral Soln
Drug Name: NA CITRATE/CITRIC ACID ORAL
Other Brand Names: Bicitra, Cytra-2, Oracit, Shohl's
Uses: This medication is used to make the urine less acidic. Urine that is less acidic helps the kidneys get rid of uric acid, helping to prevent gout and certain types of kidney stones (urate). This medication can also prevent and treat certain metabolic problems (acidosis) caused by kidney disease. Citric acid and citrate salts (which contain potassium and sodium) belong to a class of drugs known as urinary alkalinizers. Because some conditions require you to limit your intake of potassium and sodium, your doctor's choice of product may depend on how much potassium and sodium you can take.
