Vasodilators: Avoid smoking and exposure to cold to minimize symptoms. Vasodilators might help, including calcium channel blockers, Alpha antagonists, and Cilostazol (also is a platelet inhibitor).

See details.: Calcium channel blockers, especially Nifedipine are the initial treatments of choice. Vasodilators have no significant benefit. For those who fail calcium channel blockers, ed drugs such as viagra (sildenafil) are often very effective.
