Jalyn Drug Interactions
Jalyn Drug Interactions ExplainedThe following sections explain in detail the potential problems that can occur when Jalyn is combined with any of the drugs mentioned above.
Taking Jalyn in combination with other alpha blockers may lead to low blood pressure (hypotension). If your blood pressure drops too low, you may experience symptoms such as dizziness, lightheadedness, or fainting. Because of the risk of dangerously low blood pressure, it is best to avoid using Jalyn with other alpha blockers.
Taking Jalyn in combination with a beta blocker may lead to low blood pressure (hypotension). Although this is less likely to occur with Jalyn than with other alpha blockers, it may still be possible, especially when you first start using Jalyn. Therefore, if you are currently taking a beta blocker, watch for signs of low blood pressure, such as dizziness or lightheadedness, for the first couple of days after starting Jalyn.
If you do feel dizzy, it is a good idea to sit or stand slowly to reduce your risk of falling down. Also, make sure you have something stable to hold onto when sitting up or standing up.
CYP 2D6 Inhibitor Medications
The body breaks down Jalyn using enzymes in the liver known as CYP 2D6 enzymes. Certain other medications (known as CYP 2D6 inhibitors) can decrease the activity of these enzymes. Combining Jalyn with one of these CYP 2D6 inhibitors may increase the level of Jalyn in your body, increasing your risk for more side effects. Talk to your healthcare provider about your options if you are taking a CYP 2D6 inhibitor.
CYP 3A4 Inducer Medications
The body breaks down Jalyn using enzymes in the liver known as CYP 3A4 enzymes. Some other medications (known as CYP 3A4 inducers) can increase the activity of these enzymes. Taking Jalyn with one of these CYP 3A4 inducers may decrease the level of Jalyn in your body, making it less effective. Talk to your healthcare provider about your options if you are taking a CYP 3A4 inducer.
