Reviews for Dutasteride/tamsulosin

Gregz · Taken for 1 to 6 months December 27, 2017

"This caused me severe joint pain"

malcolmcro · Taken for 2 to 5 years August 2, 2017

"Have taken this medication for 4 years and it has worked well to enable urination without discomfort but still relatively slowly. A missed couple of doses brings back the symptoms of slow starting and very slow urination. A temporary change to dutasteride alone, on holiday, was not satisfactory or effective. I am now experiencing slight discomfort in the testicles which may be a side effect or unwanted consequence of the medication. It might be psychosomatic. If it gets worse I will take medical advice."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "I pee now"

75 Year Old January 11, 2014

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "I was prescribed Jalyn for 8 months and my Doctor terminated its use at the start of the new year. I noticed very little improvement in the need to urinate approximately every two hours at night. I experienced feelings of weakness, leg cramps, and breast pain/enlargement. I also have noticed some pain in hips and joints that may or may not be related to the medication. I feel positive about the decision to discontinue its use."

Christian420 · Taken for 6 months to 1 year January 3, 2014

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Been taking for 8 months and working well. I only get up once at night now. I have a penile implant so impotence is no problem. I don't ejaculate any fluid but orgasms are still great."

64 years old · Taken for 1 to 6 months December 5, 2013

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Like others I have been able go many nights without trips to the bathroom. The downside is I can barely walk more than 100 yards before my leg cramps. I think I will have my Doc take me off."

Ramie · Taken for 1 to 6 months March 12, 2013

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Have been taking Jalyn for 3 months. Did experience better urine flow and less trips to the bathroom at night. Side affects are: constipation, dry ejaculation (no semen), decreased libido, dizziness and hip pain. Might consider switching medication depending if side effects worsen."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Helped a lot. Made it a lot easier to urinate but still not a strong stream and I still have trouble fully emptying my bladder at night. Caused a lot of hair loss on my body and I no longer ejaculate anything. Sex drive is also down. I still get up 8 times at night to urinate. Doctor has not been able to help with that."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Everything comes with a price. Works very well for prostate enlargement, but the side effects are very much there."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "I took Jalyn for ten months; it worked well the first six months, then I increased trips to bathroom at night during the last four months. I had to quit because of increased risk of cancer; that is, my PSA increased passed 4.00."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Took Jalyn for several months. Leg cramps and weakness. Began to experience a throat problem. Taken off and put on Avodart."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Have taken Jalyn for 2 weeks. Went from 3 or 4 times a night to 1 or none (having to go to the toilet). Haven't had this much sleep in a long time. Hope I can keep taking it."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "I have been taking Jalyn for about 4 months, and have experienced mild improvement in my urine stream. I get up once during the night. Have experienced decreased libido and an inability to ejaculate, which happened during third month of use. Also had some mild dizziness during first month."

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Taking for about 2 weeks - noticeable improvement - was getting up 2-3 times a night, now none, stronger stream, no side effects yet. But, @ $3.00/pill and not covered by insurance, it is quite expensive."

jartini December 19, 2010

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "After a week of using Jalyn, among other less severe side effects, I developed a severe hip joint area inflammation that got so bad that I could hardly walk. Had XRAY and MRI done and no issues with the hip joint. I quit taking and switched to AVODART and have had no side effects and has helped without any noticeable side effects. Took 5 weeks for hip area to go back to normal. "

Jalyn (dutasteride / tamsulosin): "Helped with reducing the number of times I had to urinate during the night. The negative side effects, lack of ability to get and keep an erection. Lack of semen. "
