    I discovered that Ipecac is no longer sold in pharmacies due to use by anorexics. Many years ago my child ate some seeds of the plant called “Four O’Clocks” which are poisonous. Your advice to call or go to the doctor isn’t always the best choice. Time is of the essence. I gave her ipecac and she vomited them up.
