Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for query.

As home remedies like holding your breath, drinking a glass of water etc , is not successful in your case i would suggest you to get a prescription for Baclofen 10 mg.Take the medication twice daily.This is very effective in treating hiccups and would settle them in more then 96% cases after a single dose only.
Baclofen issafe and very effective in terminating episode of hiccups.
Hope i was helpful.
Regards!

I m choking on valproic acid often, can t breathe and then wheezing, gagging and coughing for a few minutes and later more gagging for an hour or more. VA MD neurologists prescribed it for me for rare seizures a few years ago, was taking dilantin then for a year and dentist told me to get off of it. Depakote tablet was too big to swallow, choked on a smaller calcium tablet and self-heimliched to get it to swallow, not up. I have a hiatal hernia, VA Dx primary progressive multiple sclerosis, Mayo Dx atypical spinocerebellar degeneration and another MD Dx spinal cord stenosis, suggesting my time in Korea may have contributed to my conditions and disease from herbicides. I m 67, weak an have many other irritating Sx, cannot sleep properly. I have just quit valproic acid and neurontin, earlier quit baclofen as both no longer gave me any relief from muscle spasns and stabbing pains all over my body.
