Pamabrom is a diuretic product included in retail drugs available in over-the-counter medications.[1] The active diuretic ingredient is 8-bromotheophylline.

It is also available in combination with acetaminophen (paracetamol) for menstrual relief. The acetaminophen helps reduce menstrual pains and the pamabrom reduces associated bloating. It's available in a number of products from various larger brands under different names, such as Midol Maximum Strength Teen Formula, Women's Tylenol Menstrual Relief and Pamprin Maximum Strength Menstrual Pain Relief Multi-Symptom. The dosages are essentially the same for each brand, including generic drug store varieties.

The acetaminophen/pamabrom combination is also marketed as a pain reliever for pain associated with back ache, headache, and muscle ache and can be used as a mild muscle relaxant.
