It just dawned on me that I should probably share my thoughts on use of calcium channel blocker medication to help with Achalasia. These are fairly serious drugs used to relax and widen blood vessels for angina/ hypertensive patients. I knew that some success had been had with these for Achalasia so asked my doc to let me try them. Been on them now for 2 months. My subjective feelings are that they do help. I don't think by any stretch that they are a cure, as they don't seem to help with continued peristalsis (ie fully emptying after initial swallowing) but they do seem to help me whilst eating... I do think everyone is different but blood flow seems to be a part of it for some... The brand I take are called Tildium in the UK... Obviously prescription only - so only one for the doc..
