I wish your husband would try to FIX his depression instead of medicating it but I know you've said he's not really interested in that so my next suggestion would be to yes discuss it with his doctor. I think most add Wellbutrin to the mix to help with the sex side. But don't quote me on this I'm not a doctor or a pharmacist. I just vaguely remembering friends mentioning this to me and how they fixed it.
Thanks Mavash! Yeah hopefully the doc will have a solution. I don't really care much for meds myself, although I understand some people may need them and they do help some people. I would hate for him to not take anything at all, and the depression to return. I really wish he would get into some therapy as well, and learn coping skills etc, the meds IMO are like a band aid thats all. He does come from a family though, where if anything is wrong, popping a pill seems to be the answer for them.
