How can I stop, get rid of and cure hiccups?

There are numerous home cures for hiccups. Our pharmacist says you can try these methods at home to get rid of hiccups:

hiccup
  • Hold your breath
  • Drink a glass of water quickly
  • Pull hard on your tongue
  • Bite on a lemon
  • Gargle with water
  • Drink from the far side of a glass
  • Place one-half teaspoon of dry sugar on the back of your tongue and swallow quickly. (This process can be repeated three times at two-minute intervals.)

Most cases of hiccups can be cured or resolve in a short time, and rarely are a medical emergency. Seek medical assistance if hiccups last more than three hours, or if they disturb your eating or sleeping habits.
