Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query my dear patient,
For worm infestation he should take a course of antihelmenthic like Albendazole 400 mg to be chewed daily before going to bed for 3 days.

For hiccups Tab Baclofen 10 mg should be taken twice daily.Its very effective in treating hiccups but its not OTC.

Regards.
