TD sounds like a horrible thing to suffer through. So sorry you dealt with that for so many years. As a veterinarian I am aware of possible neurologic side effects in animals. Luckily nothing like TD. The main issue with using it after a bowel resection is causing the stomach peristalsis before the rest of the GI tract is healed and functional, at least in animals. A low dose of Gabapentin for 2 days worked well for Tim to control and stop hiccups. It seems to be a newer solution per my research. I don't know what is used when people have long term chronic hiccups, but obviously Reglan is not a safe choice for everyone.
