Why are you taking: it? Was it prescribed by a doctor? Even over the counter drugs can have undesired effects. It would be prudent to discuss it with your doctor as self medicating is not a good practice. You may visit this site for info: https://www.drugs.com/mtm/pamabrom.html Wish you good health! - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine,

Plan: This is not real diuretic! Why do you need diuretic at your age? Who recommended it to you and why ? Be careful with not professional recommendation. No needs to increase the dosage! This increase the caffeine and blood pressure.
