No: One of the side effects of this drug used to treat obsessive compulsive disorder is actually decreased sexual ability. If your ability is decreased, you will last less time not more.

Possibly: Similar to many antidepressant medications, and has a side effect of "delayed ejaculation". Some of my patients use antidepressant vacations specifically for this side effect. Newer antidepressants, however, are less problematic in terms of other side effects.
