Would taking Lexapro (which contains oxalate) contribute to the formation of calcium oxalate kidney stones? Which is the best supplement I can take to prevent further formation of calcium oxalate kidney stones?

The small amount of oxalate contained in a Lexapro tablet will not contribute to forming calcium oxalate kidney stones. The best thing to do to prevent recurrent calcium oxalate stones is to follow a low salt DASH diet and drink large quantities of water. You should take less than 2000 milligrams of sodium in the diet daily and you can review the DASH diet at: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/public/heart/hbp/dash/new_dash.pdf
