Greg (4 years ago):

I was given a course of Amoicillin. I took the first dose on a Thursday afternoon and started with hiccups on Saturday afternoon. These increased in intensity and I had hiccups for approx. 6 hour spells every 4-8 second intervals. I took the last capsule on the following Thursday morning and when I awoke the next day, they had gone. What a horrible expereince.
