Hi there.Thank you for your question.I am Dr. SH and will be helping you out with your concerns today.
Does he have any other symptoms like pain in the upper part of the abdomen?
Has he been seen recently or had any tests done?
Can you please enumerate all the medications that he is on?
Did he take a heavy meal prior to getting hiccups?
Please let me know.
I would recommend that you should give him over-the-counter 20 mg omeprazole (prilosec) two capsules now.
If his symptoms persist or worsen take him to the ER as then he would require IV medications or prescription medications.
If his hiccups is severe already take him to the ER right away.
Let me know if you have more questions.
