worked as intended
I woke up one morning with a very upset stomach and felt like I was going to vomit,but I just never got to the point of vomiting.I was desperate and tried tickling my throat,I gagged a little but still nothing,I was feeling miserable.I remembered that I had a bottle of ipecac and I new it should make me vomit.I took the recommended dose and waited.About 20 minutes later I got very nauseous and then started vomiting.I think I vomited 3 times in an hour and when it was over I felt tired but my stomach felt much better.If ipecac was still available I would have some just in case.
