OK, lol......

First off, I got very nauseous if I over-ate with the ativan, still sort of do.  I have lost 7lbs since starting it and find myself getting dry mouth.  Therefore, i drink a ton of water...excellent weight loss aide.  Now?  Now I get pretty bad hiccups.

Anyone feel me on this, lol, or am I a freak ;)

I don't have any troubles with ativan but I had the hiccuping thing with topamax. I hiccuped so much I had the dry heaves, I hope it goes away soon.

lol - yes, I simply may not have been paying attention, but I haven't seen anybody else talk about hiccups linked to benzodiazepene use.

HOWEVER, I definately had hiccups from Xanax (or, rather, alprazolam - the generic)!  I typically rarely get hiccups, but on Xanax I would get hiccups several times a day.  Sometimes it would just be one hiccup and that would be it.  It wasn't unpleasant, and I would laugh nearly everytime I'd just have one hiccup.

It's interesting because one of the going ideas is that people get hiccups when they're nervous, but the xanax chilled me out (...somewhat, clonazepam worked WAY better).

I don't remember if clonazepam gave me the hiccups too. 

;) hiccup :)
