Jalyn is usually taken once a day, approximately 30 minutes after a meal. Try to take this medication at the same time each day. Do not crush, chew, or open a Jalyn capsule. Swallow it whole. A broken or leaking capsule can irritate your lips, mouth, or throat. Tamsulosin lowers blood pressure and may cause dizziness or fainting, especially when you first start taking Jalyn. Call your doctor if you have severe dizziness or feel like you might pass out. It may take up to 6 months before your symptoms improve. Keep using the medication as directed and tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve.
FAZACLO can cause neutropenia (a low absolute neutrophil count [ANC]), defined as a reduction below pre-treatment normal levels of blood neutrophils. The ANC is usually available as a component of the complete blood count ( CBC ), including differential, and is more relevant to drug-induced neutropenia than is the white blood cell ( WBC ) count. The ANC may also be calculated using the following formula: ANC equals the Total WBC count multiplied by the total percentage of neutrophils obtained from the differential (neutrophil “segs” plus neutrophil “bands”) . Other granulocytes (basophils and eosinophils) contribute minimally to neutropenia and their measurement is not necessary [see ADVERSE REACTIONS ]. Neutropenia may be mild, moderate, or severe (see Tables 2 and 3). To improve and standardize understanding, “severe neutropenia” replaces the previous terms severe leukopenia , severe granulocytopenia , or agranulocytosis .
