A substance capable of producing vomiting. (F.) Emetique. [This term is also restricted by the French to tartarized antimony-the emetic, as it were, par excellence.] Vomitif. Tartarized antimony, emetine, ipecacuanha, and sulphate of zinc, are the chief emetics. They are valuable agents in disease, and may either act primarily on the stomach, or secondarily on other parts of the system, - the sympathy between the stomach and other parts of the body being very extensive, and an important object of study. The following are the usual emetics Antimonii et Potassae Tartras; Cupri Acetas; Cupri Sulphas; Emetina; Gillenia; Hydrargyri Sulphas Flavus; Ipecacuanha; Lobelia; Sanguinaria; Scilla; Sinapis, and Zinci Sulphas.
