Hello,

If the hiccup is a matter of concern then it may not stop with the medicine given but it should be try with antacid with local anesthetic action with tab Omeprazole with Domperidone. Ask him to drink more water, along with this renal function needs to be tested.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
