Reviews for Pamabrom

Piccadilli · Taken for less than 1 month June 21, 2019

For Edema: “edema in legs and major swelling around belly after IUD progesterone placement. Edema greatly reduced after the very first pill. Second day all my knee and hand stiffness is completely gone. Belly is down and I haven't felt this good in years. I'm finally not taking any anti-inflammatories. Turns out all my stiffness in my joints was water retention”

For Edema: “A new med I have been prescribed is causing dependent edema to lower legs. Pamabrom taken three times a day is alleviating the swelling far better than I would have guessed an OTC diuretic could. Great product.”

For Abdominal Distension: “Pamabrom definitely helps with reducing water retention/bloating during period. However, if I take it on an empty stomach and/or don't drink enough water, it makes me nauseated. Drinking more water seems to help with the nausea. I don't become nauseated easily so this is a bit off-putting to me, and isn't listed in the side effects. Oddly enough, it also seems to act as a laxative for me (the poop is dehydrated, but I have the urge to go much more often than usual), but I have weird gastro issues so this might not hold true for others.”

Diurex Water Capsules (pamabrom) for Edema: “It has NOT worked at all for my excess fluid. Diurex hasn’t increased urination at all and has not helped my edema. It’s a waste of money.”

Diurex Water Capsules (pamabrom) for Edema: “This product works for men and women taken twice a day it does the job of much more expensive prescription products. Don’t hesitate to try it it’s worth it.”
