hi
welcome to health care magic
i read ur details

as such hiccups are a result of a reflux GERD...which occur as usual in many people..
it has nothing related with prognosis of clot in the brain..try to take an pan 20 mg before food if they are very frequent which will stop them...and also have preventive effect against ESOPHAGEAL REFLUX...
take care...

my son is on these meds. Pristiq, My son thsts theses meds. Pritiq, Lithium Carb, Olanzapine. Hes been noticing and myself that he has acid reflux and gets hickups bad, plus when he lays down at nite the acid reflux seems to be worse, im not sure if he has swelling of the throat, but i,m concerned because he seems to get chocked and can,t swollow sometimes when eatn. Is this a big concern, sholud he let his doctor know. Now when he was on someother meds in the past, he was throwing up in his sleep and was inhaleing or you,d call it vomiting and it got in his lungs one time, and they collasped. That was back in 2010 when he was on seriqiul he no longer takes that. so the new 3 meds he,s on now is what i,m worried about. please give me any addvice. Thank You concernerd mom.

My husband has had hiccups for 5 days now. He has tried everything he read to try to stop them.Eating ice, drinking cold water, breathing methods, taking a spoon of sugar, spoon of honey etc. He went to the dr. and she took an EKG thinking it may be a heart problem. It wasn t his heart.She wants him to call her after the weekend if they don t stop. After having some ice pops the hiccups stopped and he got a good nights sleep but started again today and still continues. Can you suggest any other solutions? We ll try anything. I know that this can be a sign of somthing more serious but it came on so suddenly. He said that this happened to him years ago but went away. What do you thing?

Namaste. I am really excited to get these kind wonderful guidance. My father gets hiccup , a kind of continuous ones, at some interval. He is 84 years, taking bp, heart rate related medicine. As of now I just few spoons of water but it continues for a short while . So how it should be handled better. Thanks a lot for your valuable time and prescription. Tysm.
