Brief Answer: side effect Detailed Answer: Hi The problems you have described are common side effects of these drugs. Following are options. 1. Ask his psychiatrist if he can be weaned off medicines for 6 months. If not change over to drugs which don't have this problem. 2. If above is not possible you can go ahead with IVF and TESA where surgical aspiration of sperms done for ICSI. 3. Cheaper option will be donor semen IUI where donor sperms are used. Let me know if you have any more questions. Regards
