It worked for my sister and me
Ever since school started, I get slow hiccups daily multiple times due to eating and anxiety. When I had enough, I used the straw, I even take it to college, and when my younger sister had hiccups, she used the straw. Here’s how I bought it from Amazon, I wanted to get some for my family because I hate seeing my family with hiccups, it worries me. So, I bought four on my mom’s birthday, I gave my mom her gift and she gave me one straw and the three other straws for my sisters. I get fast hiccups in the middle of the night but I haven’t tried it on my fast hiccups in the middle of the night.
My husband woke up in the middle of the night with a bout of hiccups. After listening to it for 5 minutes I announced it was time to use the HiccAway. He was super skeptical and said he would just wait for them to eventually go away on thier own. Wanting to get back to sleep, I said “Nope”. With one sip through the device, the hiccups were gone and didn’t return. The proof is undeniable.
A skeptic converted!
I have a chronic neurological condition of which very painful episodes of hiccups are a symptom. Although the science behind the HiccAway is sound, I was skeptical that it would be effective, having tried every other remedy under the sun with no luck, but felt it was worth a go. Long story short, it’s proven immediately effective every time I’ve had hiccups. One breath, one long sip, one swallow, and the hiccups vanish. It also works for my mum. I still can’t get over the fact that after so many years of struggling with this symptom I’ve found a reliable long-term solution for a one-off investment of a few dollars. If only all problems were so easy to solve! I’m so grateful to Dr. Seifi and the team at HiccAway.
*THIS MAY HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE - NO JOKE!!!
Well first of all – I never take time to write a review unless I am absolutely FLOORED with a product / service…and this time I have to say this DOES!!!
I have had chronic hiccups at least 10x-20x a year that last DAYS (not kidding!) It’s a very strange condition that affects me only if I consume too much acidic food and alcohol together (Love my spice and love my beer LOL!) So you can imagine that I’ve tried every medication / treatment you can possibly find. This led me to discover that swallowing granulated SUGAR and basically choking on it (gross I know) could stop my hiccups…only catch is you gotta sometimes consume a LOT of sugar (again gross!)
I used this exactly as directed and the very first time it stopped a particularly awful bout of hiccups.
That simple. Worked 100%. I’m sold. I want 100 of these everywhere. Thank you Hiccaway!!!!
Revise and correct my prior review
I tried the Hiccaway the first time about two weeks ago and had problems which I documented in my review. Since then, the Hiccaway team contacted me and we worked out all issues to my satisfaction. It turns out that any difficulties that I am experiencing result from major surgery I’ve had in my diaphragm area which negatively affect the otherwise effective functioning of the Hiccaway. My thanks to the Hiccaway team for reaching out to me.
Mi papá llevaba 40 años sufriendo de hipo constante, le duraba días incluso semanas. En México todos los doctores le habían dicho que no tenía remedio, por casualidad encontré este producto y habiendo probado de todo, pensamos ¿qué daño podría hacer probar algo más? Desde el día que llegó el producto, hace dos semanas, no ha vuelto a tener hipo. Lo usa cuando empieza a sentir hipo y de forma milagrosa, se le quita. Estamos asombrados y agradecidos, el hipo había trastocado su vida social y su salud, aún no podemos creer que algo tan pequeño le esté ayudando a controlar un problema tan grande. Si estás en México, ten por seguro que vas a adquirir un producto único y con el que encontraras alivio a un problema tan severo como el de mi papá. Después de haber probado tantas cosas, medicamentos caros y hasta remedios caseros, te puedo asegurar que este producto es lo mejor que encontrarás.
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?

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!
