Jalyn is a medicine used to treat signs and symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition that may be referred to as an enlarged prostate. Jalyn contains two medicines: dutasteride and tamsulosin.
How does this medication work?
Dutasteride works by blocking the production of a male hormone that causes the prostate to enlarge. Tamsulosin works by relaxing the muscles in the prostate and bladder, thereby allowing urine to flow easily. Together, they help to improve your symptoms. What are the beneficial effects of this medication and when should I begin to have results?
What: Jalyn has been shown to relieve symptoms of BPH, as measured by an appropriate symptom rating scale that is commonly used by healthcare providers to evaluate the effectiveness of the medicine in people with this condition.
When: Everyone responds differently to treatment, so try to be patient and follow your healthcare provider’s directions. It is important that you take Jalyn exactly as your healthcare provider has prescribed.
