In brief: See below

If esophageal spasms are not controlled with acid suppression alone, calcium channel blockers and nitrates are often used with varying success.

In brief: If severe

Botox injection has helped some in severe cases, unresponsive to conventional remedies.
Impipramine & trazadone have been tried with varying degrees of success. Dicyclomine and sildenafil (viagra) has also been used. There are non-medicinal/procedural options as well.
