There might be any number of things troubling your guy, explaining this loss of interest in sex, which might have nothing to do with you. Only a competent assessment by a good shrink could shed proper light on this. Have you tried calmly discussing this with your guy, to ask why he has apparently lost interest in having sex with you, while still continuing to masturbate in the same bed ? If so, what does he say ?
I don't understand why you are on fluoxetine. If you have had multiple episodes of Major Depression, properly diagnosed by a psychiatrist( not a GP ) this may be logical. But drugs don't treat unhappiness, and don't relieve it if there are very clear reasons for being unhappy. Only proper skilled counselling / psychotherapy can help then.
And you say you double the usual dose of your Fluoxetine and feel "happy" again, this may be a psychological reaction based on what you expect to happen, as this drug does no make on "happy" and wouldn't have a significant effect soon after a brief increase in the dose.
If you have been treated for depression by a GP, do see a proper psychiatric specialist for a full re-assessment and a discussion of treatment options. If you have been treated by a psychiatrist, consider getting a second opinion.
And for these problems that have arisen between you, see a marriage counsellor / couples counsellor, to work together on sorting this out
