My daughte buys gripe water for her little boy. Gets rid of them instantly. I don't know if they make it for adults, but they probably do. It comes in a pretty dark blue bottle with a little dosage lid. Good luck, and be careful never to swallow a hiccup. Extremely painful.

It's possible to stop when you hold water in your mouth, get upside down, and swallow small gulps of the water. Then stand up (SLOWLY) then hold your breath for 10 seconds. (Not 5 minutes haha.)
