Thank you for posting yuor query.
Hiccups could be due to involvement of brain stem in stroke
. In this case, it may take a few weeks for the hiccups to subside completely. Liofen is helpful. Other drug effective in this is largactil (chlorpromazine
One should also rule out hyponatremia
(low sodium level in blood), which also can cause hiccups. If sodium is low, you may increase the salt intake in the food.
