Comments from related studies:
From this study (6 months ago):
I have been on ramipril for quite some time with no issues, but last month my doctor increased the dose and since then, I seem to be unable to obtain an erection. The drive and willingness for sex still exists, but the erection just doesn't happen.
From this study (1 year ago):
I can achieve a partial erection but cannot maintain it. Once in a while I can reach orgasm. I also have psoriasis which is exacerbated by the hypertension. This condition becomes more acute, possibly because of the anxiety created from the sexual dysfunction. This then causes greater hypertension.
