In brief: Of the drugs listed

clonidine is the only one commonly associated with ED unless diuretics are involved.
However, other factors may play a role: uncontrolled BP, elevated lipid levels (cholesterol, LDL, triglycerides), emotional factors, insulin resistance/diabetes. The dose of drug is important factor: higher doses may cause problems whereas lower doses do not. Some supplements may also be involved.
