Answer

Different treatment regimens for systemic sclerosis exist. The therapeutic approach depends on the presentation of the disease and complexity of symptoms. In a recent review of the literature, calcium channel blockers, prostanoids, tadalafil, and bosentan received the strongest recommendations for their effectiveness for Raynaud phenomenon and digital ulcers.
