Sex drive and antidepressants

Name changed for this

Both my (long term) partner and I take SSRIs (antidepressants) and sex drive is an issue due to this. Whenever one of us has come off the medication before, our sex drive has increased a lot.

However at the moment neither of us are on a position to come off our medication. I am starting to (probably irrationally) worry about the infrequency with which we have sex (probably twice a month on average). We both tend to get aroused at different times of the day anyway so with our dampened down libidos it's quite rare that we are in the mood at the same time now!

I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance from other people in a similar situation, or some tips on if there's anything we can do to heat things up a bit!
