Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

You are taking an allopathy drug Clofranil (Clomipramine). Few side effect of this drug is dry mouth, ejaculation failure, and difficulty in urination. Since these are the side effects of the Clofranil, nothing can be done. You can ask the neurologist or psychiatrist (who prescribed the drug) to change the tablet. There are many other drugs for your psychological problem without causing these side effects. Those drugs should be prescribed by neurologist or psychiatrist only.

To improve the ejaculation, you can take the following Siddha drugs,

1. Poonaikaali chooranam one gram in morning and one gram evening before food with milk.

2. Rathina Pursh capsule one morning and one in the evening after food.

These two drugs will be available in Siddha pharmas.
