Acetohydroxamic acid helps prevent a build-up of ammonia in urine that can be caused by a bladder infection. Increased ammonia in urine can cause the growth of kidney stones.

Acetohydroxamic acid is used to keep urine ammonia levels low in people who have a certain type of chronic bladder infection.

Acetohydroxamic acid is not an antibiotic and will not treat the infection itself. This medicine is only part of a treatment program that may also include antibiotics to treat the infection, and surgery to remove kidney stones. Follow your doctor’s instructions very closely.
