What is Monuril?

Monuril is an antibiotic. It contains the active ingredient fosfomycin, a medicine that kills the bacteria that cause urinary tract infection (bladder infection). Monuril is typically prescribed as a one-day course, and is therefore easy to use. Monuril can be ordered online via Dokteronline.com's partner pharmacies. Monuril is a prescription-only medicine that can be obtained through an online consultation.

What is Monuril used for?

Monuril is often used to treat uncomplicated bladder infections in young and adult women. Bladder infection has the following symptoms:

  • Increased need to urinate and passing small amounts of urine;
  • Painful sensation when urinating;
  • Abdominal pain;
  • Cloudy or bloody urine.

Monuril is absorbed into the bloodstream and deposited in the urine and urinary passage where it kills the bacteria that cause the infection. Monuril is a fast-acting medicine: your symptoms will improve within a few days of taking it.

How to use Monuril

Monuril comes in sachets containing granules. Dissolve the contents of the sachet in a glass of water, stir well and drink the solution immediately. This medicine should be taken on an empty stomach, preferably before bedtime to allow the medicine to act while you sleep. Consult a doctor if your symptoms have not improved after three days.
