JALYN® is a combination of two medications: dutasteride and tamsulosin. JALYN® is used to treat the symptoms of enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) in men.
The 2 medications in JALYN® work in different ways to improve symptoms of BPH. Dutasteride prevents testosterone from converting to dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is involved in the development of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Tamsulosin relaxes the muscles in the prostate and bladder neck, making it easier to urinate.
Commonly reported side-effects of JALYN® include: ejaculation problems*, trouble getting or keeping an erection (impotence)*, a decrease in sex drive*, dizziness, enlarged or painful breasts. If you notice breast lumps or discharge, you should talk to your doctor, runny nose, and decreased blood pressure.
*These side-effects can continue after you stop taking JALYN®.
The following side-effects are less common but very serious. Talk to you doctor if you experience any of the following: decrease in blood pressure, breast tenderness or nipple discharge, painful erection,
and a progression of a form of prostate cancer.
