In brief: Possible

Many psycho-active agents can compromise sexual function, and if this is occurring, discuss other options with your psychiatrist.

In brief: Yes

That can be a common side effect, but it does not always do so.
If you are having probes with libidos it may be from the depression. If this does not improve peak with your doctor. There are things to do to counteract this side effect. Do not stop your medicine without consulting your doctor.
