Most likely : Fosfomycin (urizone) need to be taken on an empty stomach, for good absorption, whether it would interact with the citro soda that would inactivate it, don't think so, however this was a precautionary measure to assure '0' interaction. Keep pushing fluids to flush your bladder and urinary tract. Urizone dose can be repeated if no improvement but not on the same day, best wishes
