Fosfomycin (Monurol)

Fosfomycin tromethamine is a synthetic broad spectrum antibiotic that has activity against many gram negative and gram positive organisms, as well as E. faecalis and E. faecium including many VRE. It is available in the U.S. only as a sachet containing 3gm of active antibiotic for oral administration in a single dose, mixed with 4oz of water, taken with or without food. It is indicated for the treatment of uncomplicated urinary tract infections (i.e. cystitis) due to either E. coli or E. faecalis in women.
