It is possible that loss of interest in sex is due to a side effect of Sulpitac. Sulpitac raises serum prolactin level which causes sexual dysfunction. Get his blood tested for serum prolactin level. If the level if higher than normal, consult his doctor with the report. Two things can be done. Sulpitac can be replaced with another medicine or another medicine like aripiperazole can be added to Sulpitac. If the level is normal, then he needs assessment for other causes of loss of libido.
Thanks for query,
Sulpitac has got side effect of having sexual dysfunction but in comparison with other drugs it ha got less effect on sexual dysfunction.
Consult psychiatrist and discuss for giving another drug.
Ok and bye.

sulpitac can cause sexual side effects .Hyperprolactinaemia may occur in patients receiving amisulpride at low dose of 50 mg/day and results in galactorrhoea, amenorrhea and sexual dysfunction. one thing is important that what is the exact sexual side effect in this patient.
loss of libido can be the part of illness itself. if the side effect is due to medicines.. it should be changed.
The symptom ameliorates on withdrawing the drug, switching to non-prolactin-elevating drugs (LIKE clozapine, olanzapine, quetiapine, aripiprazole, or ziprasidone) , and timely management with dopamine agonist like BROMOCRIPTINE
