About Fosrium Powder Sachet 8 gm

Fosrium Powder Sachet 8 gm belongs to a class of drugs called 'antibiotics' used to treat or prevent bladder infections. Bladder infection is mostly caused by a bacterial infection within the bladder. Bacteria enter through the urethra and move into the bladder and cause infections.

Fosrium Powder Sachet 8 gm contains Fosfomycin, which inhibits the formation of the bacterial cell wall (a protective covering) necessary for survival. Thus, it kills bacteria. Also, Fosrium Powder Sachet 8 gm decreases the attachment of bacteria to cells lining the urinary bladder, thereby preventing bladder infection caused by E.coli bacteria. 

Take Fosrium Powder Sachet 8 gm as prescribed by your doctor. You are advised to take Fosrium Powder Sachet 8 gm for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you based on your medical condition.
