Is there a medication to prevent kidney stones? I have had 3 in past 3 years.

I have heard of some natural ones and some things that Doctors prescribe ! Google Webmd or Mayo Clinic for Doc's meds and just Google kidney stones and look at some of the natural things you can take to prevent them . I would ask your Doctor what he thinks first , then go from there !

Great answer Duke. My urologist recommends drinking more water, stop drinking tea, and drink lemonade to dissolve the small stone you might already be developing. Its worked well for me.

The easiest method to prevent them, DRINK MORE WATER! It's all natural, and it can easily help prevent formation of most forms of kidney stones. In a recent report from the AMA, just preventing minor dehydration can reduce kidney stone formation by 46%!

My doctor said, Let your lips guide your way to the water bottle! Early dehydration is first felt in your lips! Who knew?

check with your doctor and see what kind of kidney stones you have. some are related to an excess of a mineral in your diet and can be controlled by minimizing this mineral. you need to know what type you are getting. then consult a dietitian or your doctor to see what foods to avoid.
