How is your general health overall ? Any previous known medical conditions ? If all the home remedies failed then you will need prescription medications like metoclopramide , domperidone or balcofen . You will need to get a script from your doctor for this .

I would imagine you must have tried measures like chewing gum, valsalva maneuver ( pressing your nose and trying to breath out with your nose and mouth closed) or salt/ yogurt .

If these hiccups do not settle with medication then you will need a few tests to find out the cause.

Hope it answers your query
