Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Bupropion increases tamsulosin levels by affecting its metabolism in the liver. However, both can be used together , safely and are not contraindicated. Dose adjustment can be done if you experience hypotension episodes, dizziness or any erectile dysfunction.

Itraconazole also increases tamsulosin levels so till the itraconazole is used, you might consider withholding the tamsulosin or asking your PCP to prescribe an alternative.

Wishing you best of health

I was masturbating regularly (3-4 times in a week, from the age of 14yrs). Now I have almost finished. Now there is no Erection (inability to achieve erection) and No hardness in my penis. And if there is some erection or hardness it is for very short duration. I am unable to maintain erection sufficient. My penis is very small it is only 4" inches when erect. Non-erect penis is arnd 2 inches. Its look like a small child’s, undeveloped penis. The foreskin of penis is flap & loose also. I have also suffered from PE. I come almost in seconds (through masturbation, I have never do sex).
I discharge in Sleep. Whitish fluid is the released through the penis while urinate, while chatting from a girl, or thinking abt sex (anytime) (spermatorrhoea) I think now I have no Sperm (bcz scrotum size is also very small). Now I have no interest in sex bcz of these problems. I thought that she (my life partner) will laugh on me and I think I couldn’t do sex, and cant satisfy my partner, from this problem I m unable to do marriage.
What can I do to increase the size of penis, for Increase hardness, increase duration of hard erection, quantity, quality & motility of semen/sperm, Sexual stamina & Energy, prevent PE, increases Desire for sex, Duration of sexual act, etc.
Is this Erectile Dysfunction? What may be causing of these problems? Is it a complex case? Is the problem is curable? How soon after I began treatment, can I expect improvement? How much improvement can I reasonably expect, Am I at risk of this problem recurring, Wt is the course, wt is the duration of entire course, Course fee, is the solution is permanent. Can it prevent with this course, wt is success rate, is that any side effects of it. Plz tell me more abt it. With full details.

I had my prostate roto rooted about 5 months ago and sexual function has decreased somewhat steadily and desire has too. I no longer ejaculate. The blue pill doesn't help. Could the procedure have caused this?
