In brief: Raynaud's

In a recent study by the raynaud's treatment study investigators, sustained-release Nifedipine reduced attack frequency by approximately 60% and was well tolerated.
This has minimal GI side effects. If you have GI motility problems try Cisapride via consulting your physician.

In brief: Nifedipine XL

Nifedipine xl and it has to be the long-acting preparation.
The regular Nifedipine is associated with unacceptable side effects, including death.
