Thank you for posting your query in HCM. I had gone through your question I understand your concerns.
yes antidepressants cause loss of libido that sex drive. Testosterone hormone is one of the sex hormones to control libido in humans. Failure to deal with sexual problems would result in treatment of non compliance as Higher doses of antidepressants lead to loss of libido. I would advise you to consult your doctor for further treatment.
Hope i have answered your question if you have further questions i will be happy to help.
