Jalyn

USER REVIEWS

Comment from: 75 or over Female on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: November 06

Helps control urination at night, but causes loss of ability to obtain and keep an erection. Must take after food or will cause a burning pain in the pit of the stomach. Causes lack of Seman... But it does the job in place of FLOMAX and AVODART.

Jalyn has improved urine flow and frequencey of urination at night. From 5-6 times a night to 2 or 3. No problem with erections but have little or no seman, decreasing pleasure of ejaculations. Have had severe backache but not sure that is related to the jalyn. Will continue for a while and see if symptoms improve and backache subsides.

After a couple of weeks the product started working but the sexual side affects were terrible. I am now on a different product and it is working better.

Only side effect so far is a runny nose, If I take it before I go to bed. I wake up with a horrible headache so I take it after breakfast. no erection problems or decrease in semen. I've had two prostate operations and dont want another so i was glad to see a combo drug come out.I have great flow and no start and stopping when i take a leak.

After taking one pill on two consecutive days My frequent urges to urinate during the day and at night greatly diminished along with the unexpected bowel movements that often accompanied my urination. Also my stream returned to near normal.

I have been taking Jalyn a few years-maybe more than 5. Had a very large prostate-no signs of cancer. Prostate reduced slowly over a couple of years and urination issues improved-now pretty good. Smaller prostate=less ejaculation fluid, but desire was still good until about 18 months ago-may have gradually diminished from Jalyn. Got prescription for Cialis-helps erections. Before Jalyn-sex about twice a week and maybe masturbate twice more was typical. Now, sex once and masturbate once is typical. I am thinking about stopping Jalyn for a few weeks to see what happens. It is a couple of months before my next urology appointment. Wondering if I should talk to doctor before stopping or going to every other day taking it.

JALYN induced partial paralysis in my right arm muscles after using for two weeks as did another type of prostrate medication one year ago which dissipated - but JALYN has not started to dissipate for three months after stopping it's use! My doctor has no explanation for these occurrences - now I'm left with a very weak right arm! What can I do to regain the use of my right arm? Someone please help....many thanks!!

Although the stream is slightly better, the drug makes me fatigued. I also experience dizziness upon standing, back ache and retrograde ejac (but no loss of desirte).

Had been on Flomax or generic equal for couple of years with continued weak stream and usual sexual side effects. Dr. put me on Jalyn, worked better but, I believe caused severe headaches (I NEVER got headaches before). Just switched back to tamsulosin and headaches have gone away. Weak stream has not come back.....yet.

Jalyn is slow acting, very expensive and is readily available by taking its two ingredients separately.

Before Jalyn I couldn't urinate without extreme difficulty I have taken the first dose and have gone four times in twelve hours. I am very happy to stop having to push real hard.

I am 60 and have been taking the drug for 6 months. I still urinate at night frequently but the stinging and small pains related to enlarged prostate urination have disappeared. Sex is not good and the growth of my beard and hair has slowed way down. My DR said this is also a side effect. No one told me about the hair and beard thing!
