    The following side effects have been associated with the use of syrup of ipecac:

    • Loose bowel movements.
    • Diarrhea.
    • Fast irregular heartbeat.
    • Inhaling or choking on vomit.
    • Stomach cramps or pains.
    • Coughing.
    • Weakness.
    • Aching.
    • Muscle stiffness.
    • Severe heart problems often occur in cases of ipecac abuse. Because ipecac stays in the body for a long time, damage to the heart frequently occurs in persons who repeatedly take ipecac to induce vomiting.
    • Seizures. These are most likely to occur in patients who accidentally swallow ipecac or in ipecac abusers.
    • Death. Deaths have been reported due to ipecac abuse in bulimic persons.

    Homeopathic Ipecacuanha has been highly diluted and is relatively nontoxic.
