Response from Dr. Holodniy

Although crixivan could cause kidney stones, the meds and diet you are on now wouldn't usually be associated with kidney stone formation. You haven't indicated whether you have consulted with a nephrologist or not. It's important to know what the stones are made of and whether you have any structural problems in your urinary tract system, so further testing and imaging would be indicated if not already done yet.
