HICCOUGH

( )

Magnesia phos
Idiopathic or reflex after morphine and other remedies failed. Hiccough very obstinate, causing long lasting soreness.

Natrum mur
Hiccough after abuse and in consequence of quinine.

CLINICAL CASES
Dr. Burnett, in his work on Natrum mur., relates a case of singultus of ten years' standing brought about by abuse of quinine and renewed after every dose, cured permanently by Natrum mur.
Obstinate case of singultus in a patient suffering from typhoid fever, almost continued, so violent in character that the patient was sore for three days. Other remedies were tried without effect; prescribed Magnesia phos. The result was remarkable: within an hour the difficulty was modified, and the next day he was very much improved and speedily yielded to the continued use of the remedy. (John Fearn, M. D., California Med. Journal, August, 1887.)
