Hi Crimson..
I used nifedipine. No side effects other than an occasional local irritation. It didn't heal my current fissure problem, but it has in the past, when it took several months of use, along with good diet habits to keep stools soft.
Nitroglycerin causes headaches in most people as a side effect, something you can avoid by using nifedipine. I can't use nitroglycerin because of migraines.

Crimson:
I used Nifedipine for 6 weeks (3 times a day, as prescribed) and it did heal my fissure (at least my CRS said he is 90%+ sure the fissure is healed). I didn't have any side effects.
