How many doses of fosfomycin are needed for UTI?
Fosfomycin 3gm sachet is typically prescribed as a single-dose treatment for uncomplicated urinary tract infections (UTIs) in adults. This single-dose regimen is effective in eradicating the bacteria causing the infection, particularly Escherichia coli, which is the most common causative agent of UTIs. The recommended dose of fosfomycin for uncomplicated UTIs is usually 3 grams, administered as a single oral dose.

This convenient dosing regimen offers advantages in terms of patient compliance and ease of administration compared to traditional antibiotic regimens that require multiple doses over several days. However, for complicated UTIs or infections caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria, fosfomycin may be used in combination with other antibiotics or administered as multiple doses over several days, depending on the severity of the infection and the patient's clinical condition. It's important for healthcare providers to determine the appropriate dosing regimen based on the specific characteristics of the UTI and individual patient factors.
