Fosfomycin - Summary
Fosfomycin, marketed under the brand Monurol, is a type of antibiotic medication used in the treatment of bacterial infections proven or strongly suspected to be caused by bacteria susceptible to the bactericidal effects of fosfomycin.

Fosfomycin - Mechanism of Action
Fosfomycin (Mourol) is a synthetic, broad-spectrum antibiotic medication specifically used in treating certain uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) in women. Fosfomycin's mechanism of action is related to inhibiting bacterial wall synthesis by inactivating the enzyme enolpyruvyl transferase, leading to bacterial death. Fosfomycin may also impair the ability for bacteria to stick to epithelial cells in the urinary tract. Fosfomycin has demonstrated activity against both gram-negative and gram-positive aerobic organisms related to uncomplicated UTIs.
Fosfomycin - Cost and Dose
Fosfomycin is not inexpensive, costing almost $100 for one packet of Monurol 3g. Fosfomycin coupons may be available online or through patient assistance programs and some insurance plans may cover the costs associated with a Monurol prescription. Monurol is an oral medication that is supplied in a single-dose sachet that contains fosfomycin 3g. More than one dose of fosfomycin should generally not be taken for treatment. To take Monurol orally, one should pour the contents of the sachet into warm water and stir prior to ingesting. Following oral absorption of Monurol, fosfomycin tromethamine is easily absorbed in most people. Monurol can generally be taken with or without food. In the body, fosfomycin is converted into a metabolite, a free acid known as fosfomycin. Fosfomycin is excreted in both the urine and the feces. The mean elimination half life is typically under six hours.The Mourol (fosfomycin) sachet should be stored at 25° C.
