Answer

Medical therapy is used to treat hypercalciuria whenever dietary treatment alone is inadequate, ineffective, unsustainable, or intolerable for the patient. [5] Medications used in the treatment of hypercalciuria include the following

  • Diuretics - Thiazides, indapamide, and amiloride
  • Orthophosphates - Neutral phosphate
  • Bisphosphonates - Alendronate
  • Calcium-binding agents - Sodium cellulose phosphate; rarely used
