Q. Home remedies aren't stopping my hiccups. Is there something my doctor can prescribe to help?
A. In the May 2018 issue, I answered a question about hiccups, saying they are common but typically short-lived, and that simple home remedies often can end them. However, I ran out of space to say something about treatments for the very unusual cases of hiccups that don't respond to simple treatments.
