"Had abdominal surgery Sept 23rd 2013. Developed intractable hiccups immediately afterward. Unable to resolve them. After 2 months went on Baclofen 20 mg every 6 hours, they stopped , have now tapered back to 20mg every 12 hours, still under control, and will cut dose again. This is the only medicine that worked."

"2020 - had total knee replacement surgery which prompted 5 miserable days of continuous hiccups. No sleep, no rest and was becoming depressed. One single dose of Baclofen 10mg and the hiccups were cured. 2024 - had knee revision surgery which caused 2 continuous days of hiccups. I begged the Hospital Doctor to prescribe Baclofen. Unfortunately, he tried chlorpromazine which did not work. Eventually, he agreed to try Baclofen. One 10mg dose cured the hiccups."

"Had unbearable hiccups for a week straight due to severe acid reflux. It was so bad that I was getting maybe 2 hour a sleep a night. Went to see my gastro and he prescribed balcofen 5mgs (3 x Daily). It took about 6 hours to kick in and I had to double up my dose (10mg) but the hiccups finally have subsided. Thank goodness for this medication because having recurring hiccups for a week straight was miserable."

"Had hiccups 10 times an hour; often to the point of hindering breathing. Lasted two days before I sought med help. Nurse practitioner prescriber baclofen. Two pills and it was gone. 10 mg. Amazing. I have most of the prescription left, which I will keep."

"Chronic hiccups. Idiopathic. Failed gabapentin, Lycra, chlorpromazine. Responded initially to 20 mg twice a day. However to maintain effect have needed to increase to four times a day a dosing. It definitely works but doses higher than 100 mg create insomnia. Wish there was a longer acting version but it is a very inexpensive medication."

"Have had intractable hiccups for month 24/7 which generally culminate into vomiting in late evenings. Tried gabapentin - no effect. Tried reglan - also no effect. Finally baclofen 20-30 mg every 6 hours did the trick. Initial Rx was for 10 my every 8 hours but that low a dose did nothing. 80mg per day made life tolerable and minimized the hiccups Altho I can still feel them lurking just under surface."

"About twice a year I get a bout of intractable hiccups that last for 6 weeks or longer. I learned a great trick that works temporarily to stop them (would probably cure a normal acute bout of them) I discovered that 20mg of Baclofen will do the trick for a while. I usually have to repeat it three times a day, although a hiccup or burp might slip through in between doses. If it’s caused by GERD like mine taking Pepcid or Nexium does help."

Lioresal (baclofen) "We tried it for my dad when he was having non-stop hiccups for weeks after having TIA. It definitely worked when he used the medication. It's a lot of help indeed."

"I had hiccups continuously for 5 days due to antibiotics used for fever. Lot of medicines used but in vein. Ultimately only one baclofen 10 mg tablet was the cure for my hiccups, and they stopped"
