In brief: Maybe

One study out of cornell-weill medical center looked at Prozac (fluoxetine) in men with subfertility and did find reduction in sperm counts and motility.

In brief: Antidepressants

Nope. They can affect potency & performance but not fertility.

In brief: Yes

Some men do experience diminished sperm counts on these meds.
They can also affect sexual performance. However, look for some other treatable cause.
