This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Hiccups can be caused by various causes.
Acid reflux is a common cause.
That can be treated with antacid like Maalox liquid 30 ml 2 times a day.
Hiccups can also be caused by the nerve irritation at the throat and diaphragm.
Enlarged thyroid gland or head and neck tumor should be ruled out as well.
If no identifiable cause is found after clinical evaluation, prescriptions medications can be used for effective treatment.
Metoclopramide or Chlorpromazine is very effective.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
