Your questions should be best answered by the psychiatrist who is your treating doctor. The doctor will gradually optimize medications to help you get better with the depressive episode and hope they you will recover soon from the same.
Regarding side effects, it would be important for you to know that sexual symptoms of depression like lack of libido are quiet prominent and are likely to affect persons with depressive episodes. Since you report of having a chronic depression, kindly discuss with your psychiatrist about having investigations to rule out medical causes of depression, which may simultaneously affect your sexual health. Medication changes can be done as per your side effects, as per your psychiatrist's discretion.
Discuss in details about these issues with your psychiatrist and that will surely benefit you..
