Advice needed - Hiccups


Recommended Posts

My Dad started his chemo on Monday. Day 2 he started hiccuping and it is driving him mad. It has stopped for 1.5 hrs max so obviously affects his sleep. Has anyone else had this and can share how they may have gotten around it. The nurse said there are other anti sickness drugs to try. Reading online the dexamethasone or Metoclopramide might be the cause but are there any alternatives to try or alternate with?

Do you know the name of your Dad's chemo? My Dad had hiccups while treated with Folfirinox but this stopped after he switched to Gemzar Abraxane
