All Medications for Esophageal spasm

  • Isordil
    (isosorbide dinitrate)

    • Pill
    • Extended release
  • Nifedipine
    Prescription only

    Nifedipine works well to lower blood pressure and prevent chest pain, but you have to be okay with avoiding grapefruit. You can't miss doses, and you might get persistent swelling.

    • Pill
    • Extended release
  • Nitrostat
    (nitroglycerin)
