Our expert says:
Many antidepressants (and other medications) can have negative impact on the libido or spontaneous desire. It may be worth checking out with whoever has prescribed this medication whether Adco Talomil is one of them and asking if you can replace this with another antidepressant.
That said, the fact that you are saying that the marriage was rocky from the start indicates that there are more reasons for the the difficulties and not just your absent sexual desire. Furthermore, it is well known that relationship and other factors can impact on sexual desire, not just antidepressants!
I recommend that, together with your doctor, you rule out possible physiological factors that could aggravate your loss of desire. In the mean time, I also encourage you to begin to identfy what else, other than your loss of interest in sex, is making this marriage rocky...what things you do that anger/frustrate/hurt your husband, and vice versa, what things he does that impact on you in this way (and could add to your waning libido!) This might need to be worked through with a psychologist if there are many relationship issues, or with a sex therapist if it mostly hinges on sexual difficulties.
