Took 6 weeks for my order to be finally be delivered and have been using non stop for last hour to get rid of my post-chemo chemo hiccups with zero effect.
The first time I used this, it didn’t work because I did it wrong.
I used it a second time and it worked amazingly!
Here’s what I did…
1st GLASS – 6oz water, start pulling and don’t stop until glass is empty. *I even hiccuped during this glass.
2nd GLASS – pull until glass is empty. *I felt my diaphragm relaxing.
3rd GLASS – pull until empty and if hiccups aren’t gone, keep going but increase the amount of water.
PULL HARD AND LONG, it’s how you reset the area of your brain that triggers the spasms.
MUST READ THIS REVIEW
This product is a 5 Star in my opinion. I gave the 1 Star to get your attention.
I tried it the first time and I didn’t suck enough water, I didn’t do it long enough.
Lately I’ve been sick with a cold and coughing a lot. For the first time ever, coughing triggered my diaphragm spasms aka hiccups. I gave it another try and this time I pulled until there was no more water left 3 times. I even hiccuped during the first class but kept going. I felt the tension in my diaphragm subsiding when I started the second glass of water so kept going into the third. I’m typing this an hour since and haven’t hiccuped once.
Pull at least 6 oz of water per glass and once you start pulling, don’t stop until the glass is empty. Go right to the next glass and repeat. Three glasses did it for me.
I don't understand the technique. The printed instructions are insufficient.
This isn’t working for me, and the videos are not helpful since they tend to show a person with the Hiccoway in their mouth but nothing about technique or if the water level in the glass lowers. However, in one video it does show a young boy drinking from a clear glass and the water level dos not lower so he isn’t swallowing water, presumably. So, my Questions are: (1) I suck (air only?) and swallow 3 times. Am I ever supposed to actually suck water into my mouth? (2) If so, do I swallow it? (3) Do I breathe during this process? (4) Can I talk to an actual person and have a discussion?
Response from Hiccaway | Instant Hiccup Relief, Guaranteed!
Hi Jim, thank you for reaching out, we would love to walk you through more clear instructions. Dr. Seifi will personally reach out to assist you. But short answer is, you definitely need to be drinking the water through the HiccAway device and swallowing as you would any beverage.
We will be in touch. Thanks
This cured my hiccups
Worked right away!
So glad that I bought this! I saw it through an Instagram ad of all things and it’s probably the only thing useful that I’ve purchased after seeing on Instagram.
Since I was a kid I’ve always gotten the hiccups pretty frequently. I had the chance to try it out today and it cured my hiccups after just a few sips through the straw. So happy to have a solution that works!
Absolutely changed my life!
I’ve had hiccups for nearly 8 years. At the very least once every 10 minutes to every couple of seconds. My doctor never gave it any concern and I had to beg a colleague of hers to put it down on my chart. Years and years past and I just expected that my hiccups would last forever. My husband ended up finding hiccaway through an article on his phone and we ordered it right away. Because hey, if it didn’t work it’s not too expensive, right? The package came when I was home alone and I used it. I stared up at the clock for three hours, counting the minutes and crying of happiness. No hiccups! I only have to use it once or twice a day now. I’ve maybe hiccuped 5 times since I got it and it goes away right after. I know that there is still something wrong that makes my body want to hiccup, but with Hiccaway I get relief from the worst part of it. I feel like a major weight has been lifted.
Cancer Chemo Treatment
Started a 3 day chemo treatment with a pump that will last for 16 weeks. On the second day, hiccups would start and last ALL day. Very uncomfortable, chest was hurting from the spasms. Tried all traditional treatments, and none worked. Saw hiccaway on TV news show and thought I’d give it a try. Works as described, finally some relief. I will be recommending this to my doctors.
Works! Also needs a case!
I have already written a glowing review about this product! It works incredibly well! They really really need to make a case for it! I love it so much I always have it on the go. I would love for a small case so the straw doesn’t get dirty at the bottom of my purse. So please add a case!
This really works!
I’ve frequently gotten hiccups since I was a kid (I’m now 75), and this little device is fast, easy, and effective. Thanks!
It Worked instantly and stopped my Hiccups !
I found about HiccAway on ” The Guardian” news report and bought one to give it a try. It is a good quality, durable plastic tube with a pressure valve in the lower end. I usually get hiccups due to eating dry food ( bread or Pasta) and Spicy food and nothing works for me to stop the hiccups. However, this time, using HiccAway was shocking and instant! Just don’t fill the cup full of water but only shallow water for better vacuum pressure. I am glad I found this and thank you guys and your scientists for making this!
AMAZING JUST AMAZING
Skeptical but convinced
So I got this expecting gimmicks and to give my kid a useless but fun looking straw, and wow was I wrong.
It took a few tries to figure it out, but exhaling first helps a lot. We got it for my son, who does a lot of gasping and air swallowing and ends up with the hiccups once a week or so, and it Works. Usually he gets it on the second try, and occasionally we have to go for a third sip, but hiccups are absolutely gone afterwards.
Tried it myself today (don’t forget to flip the bottom cap based on Child/Adult) and by the second try, since I have exhaling issues because of asthma, my hiccups were gone!
Super great product, going to recommend it to everyone I know suffering from regular hiccups.
Doesn't work for me
I bought this product enthusiastically as I HATE hiccups with a passion and once I get them nothing works. I’ve given the Hiccaway many many opportunities even going to this internet to find out if I’m using it wrong. Unfortunately it just doesn’t work on me…..in fact I have the hiccups as I’m writing this, using the hiccaway over and over hoping it stops them, I still have the hiccups….
Amazing! All health care facilities should have this!
This product is amazing! I had a patient with intractable hiccups and I tried many medications but finally hiccaway did the trick!
This product is a very simple, non invasive product that cures hiccups without the use of medications, which can often have side effects!
Life changing device
This was an incredible device that surprisingly fixed mu frequent hiccup. I highly recommend this for ever house household and health care facilities.
This is a simple miracle I get hiccups sometimes that lasts for hours, not anymore! This thing works immediately, a few sips works for me. Whoever invented this, thank you!
This simple device is a miracle. Pour a full glass of water and drink through the straw forcefully and without taking breaths. Works every time.
Might seem a little pricey but, for no hiccups, it’s worth every dime.
It works and worth it
This is a miracle. Our daughter gets chronic hiccups and this product cures them EVERY.SINGLE.TIME. There was one time we had to try multiple times but they stopped. It has also helped with other family members.
I have had hiccups literally since I was in the womb. For years now, my hiccups have been loud, aggressive, overwhelming, and at times painful when I have them. I used to have a method for relief, but it stopped working for me for some reason. But this is a life saver! I can’t imagine not having this neat device. 9/10 I use it with water, but one time I had no access and just sucked on the straw dry, and my hiccups went away! This may have been a fluke, but it sorta could make sense I think? Regardless, using this straw as directed is a game changer and I highly recommend it to anyone that suffers from hiccups regularly.
