A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.
The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.
Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Your healthcare provider may prescribe Urocrit K for managing kidney conditions like renal tubular acidosis (RTA) with kidney stones, hypocitraturic calcium oxalate nephrolithiasis, or uric acid lithiasis with or without calcium stones.
Urocrit K works by increasing how alkaline the blood is, increasing urine pH. Subsequently, greater amounts of citrate are excreted through the kidneys. Urocrit K also increases potassium in the blood and kidneys. The overall effect is that stones are less likely to form in the kidneys.
Take Urocrit exactly as directed. The dose will be determined based on your urinary citrate lab, which the prescriber will measure before starting the drug.
