Hi Jayaa, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Ramipril is known to cause Dry cough. Do you have cough associated with chest pain? May be you could ask for a change of medicine with your Physician. It does not cause Erectile Dysfunction, Probably you should get your Blood Sugars tested. Both Fasting and Post Prandial. What is your height, weight and waist size?
Exercise regularly and stick to your treatment plan, Go for regular follow ups. If you Continue to have Erectile Dysfunction, which can also be due to Psychological causes or uncontrolled Blood Pressure, better get evaluated by a Urologist.

Wish you Good Health.
