In brief: Depends
If esophageal spasm is caused by acid reflux then antacids may help.
Sometimes calcium channel blockers and nitrates. Botox injections have been used in severe cases.

In brief: No magic bullet!
Drugs such as Diltiazem and certain antidepressants (trazadone, imipramine) may help.
As a second line nitrates, bethenecol, viagra (sildenafil) and botulism injection may be tried. Some times drinking hot liquids with meals may facilitate esophageal motility and decrease spasm. No magic bullet however.
