Thanks for posting your query.
Ramipril is not an anxiolytic medicine. This medicine is used for control of blood pressure and use of this medicine may cause Disturbances of balance, headache, nervousness, restlessness, tremor, sleep disorders, confusion, loss of appetite, depressed mood, feeling of anxiety, paraesthesiae, uncommonly, disturbances of smell and taste or partial, sometimes complete loss of taste, muscle cramps, erectile impotence and reduced sexual desire.
So not using ramipril won't increase your anxiety.
Put your query if you have.
