I empathize with that. My late husband (no condolences needed, I hated him) used to be on that (Cymbalta, right?) and it had two sexual side effects that happened at random: a.) He couldn't get or stay hard. b.) If he DID manage to get hard and perform, he couldn't reach orgasm.
Loss of interest in sex is a miserable side effect to Cymbalta and several other anti-depressants, that doesn't fade, from my understanding. My husband eventually stopped taking his and [went psycho from withdrawals, so don't do what he did] and his abilities came back to him in about two weeks. I have heard good things about Pristiq but I don't know if it is still available.
Now for the dreaded words: Call your doctor and ask for a replacement with a low risk of sexual side effects. An anti-depressant is redundant if the side effects make you miserable.
