In brief: Diuretics, B-blocker

Diuretics and beta-blockers are the most significant BP meds that cause ed.
If you are on a diuretic, it should be the lowest dose possible. Beta-blockers do it in part from diminshing heart rate. However, some ca channel blockers do this as well. You need to talk with your doctor treating your hbp!
