what u do to stop hicupps !!
23 Dec 06
I drink a glass of cold water upside-down (not standing on my head, but tipping my head forward over the glass, and drinking from the wrong side) all in one go. That usually works, but if not I do some controlled breathing exercises. Sometimes I get hiccups when I'm very hungry, and if that's the case, I eat something!

Drink 1/2 glass water, slowly. Keep a tsp. of sugar in your month and suck slowly. Suck 2-3 small pieces of fresh ginger. This helps in hiccups which keep occurring again and again. OR Take a large mouthful of water with out swallowing, plug both ears, and slowly begin to swallow the water. Unplug your ears and you're hiccup free!

Some Common ideas on how to get rid of hiccups: * putting fingers in throat, or ears * standing on head * someone jumps out and scare you when you're not expecting it - a famous treatment * holding breath and counting to 10 * breathing deeply * trying to swallow hiccups * massaging the bottom throat between the collar bone or under both collar bones * drink as fast as possible * putting sugar on tongue * hold chocolate on your tongue Referred to as singultus, hiccups are treated medically only in severe and persistent (termed "intractable") cases. Haloperidol (Haldol, an anti-psychotic and sedative), metoclopramide (Reglan, a gastrointestinal stimulant), and chlorpromazine (Thorazine, an anti-psychotic with strong sedative effects) are used in cases of intractable hiccups. In severe or resistant cases, baclofen (an anti-spasmodic) is sometimes required to suppress hiccups. Effective treatment with sedatives often requires a dose that either renders the person unconscious or highly lethargic. Hence, medicating singultus is done short-term and is not a situation where the affected individual could continue with normal life activities while taking the medication.
