Brief Answer:
Yes

Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but unfourtanetly Ashwagandha causes a decrease in blood pressure and interfere with medications that are used to treat high blood pressure as ramipril. I would not recommend for you to use it but if you need to use it then I recommend that you keep a close monitor of your blood pressure levels .. I hope I answered your question.
