Kidney Stone Treatment

If your stone doesn’t bother you, your doctor may suggest you wait 2-4 weeks for it to pass on its own. She may tell you to drink extra water to help flush it out of your body.

She may ask you to catch the stone in a strainer when you pee. A lab can test it for minerals to see if medication might prevent more stones.

If you’re in discomfort, you can manage your symptoms while you wait for the stone to exit.

Over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen can help. You might also need a drug to ease nausea.

Prescription drugs can help hurry the stone along
