In brief: See your doctor.

Low sex drive is a common side effect of antidepressants, particularly the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (ssris).
Your provider may be able to switch you to a different medication with fewer sexual side effects, or recommend ways to approach this in your relationship with your husband. You may want to discuss this issue with your doctor to see what options are available.
