How long did you have hiccups?

I had the hiccups for two weeks. After two doctor appointments and a visit to urgent care I was prescribed chlorpromazine. After five days they are finally gone!

I have had the hiccups for three weeks. I had a surgery before the hiccups started but I can't get rid of them.

I've had the hiccups for four months, and my doctor says that it's stress related. I take amitriptyline three times a day and it doesn't work. I'm starting to think I'll be stuck with them for the rest of my life.
