is it normal to lose your sex drive being on 150 mg of Zoloft?

I'm a 24 year old female and I am on lamictal 200 mg a day and I'm on zoloft 150 mg a day.  I take these medications due to bipolar and depression and PMDD

I notice ever since they increased my Zoloft medication that I am not as horny as I used to be.  My husband and I have a great sex life but we don't do it as often because I am never in the mood. I am very attracted to my husband and love him for who he is, I don't know if its the medication doing it to me or a hormone imbalance
