Jalyn (generic name: Dutasteride/Tamsulosin) is a drug which is prescribed for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men with an enlarged prostate. Jalyn contains a combination of dutasteride and tamsulosin. Dutasteride prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Tamsulosin is in a group of drugs called alpha-adrenergic blockers. Tamsulosin relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate. Prostate enlargement is a common condition that affects older men and is usually not a serious threat to health. The prostate is a small gland found only in men, located between the penis and bladder. If the prostate becomes enlarged, it can place pressure on the bladder and urethra, the tube through which urine passes.
Jalyn Side Effects:
As with any drug, there may be side effects from taking Jalyn including decreased libido, decreased amount of semen production during sex, impotence, breast tenderness or enlargement, mild dizziness and runny nose. More serious side effects may include feeling faint and a penis erection that is painful or that lasts 4 hours or more. If you experience any side effects you must seek immediate medical attention for safety.
You should follow the instructions of the doctor who prescribed it you, and there will also be dosage and information on the pack.
