Hello raj ;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Smoking and drinking does cause damage to the sperm count due to the action of free radicals.So your uncle should stop smoking as soon as possible and regarding the medicine Lycobal OD he should take it as it is an antioxidant and yes it will help to improve his sperm count.
