My husband is on it and it has done wonders for him and his mood, so I don 't want him to stop taking it... but he's not able to ejaculate at all anymore which is no good for either of us... so can anything be done?

Sexual side effect are common with anti-depressants. You have two options, change medications or sometimes after a period of time your body gets used to it and things return to normal. Also, a lower dose may work plus solve this issue. Regardless, you should talk with physician. Be careful with anti-depressants. I have had no positive effects from them. I am glad they are working. Placebo effect or long term cure?
best of luck dave
