By Stormonth, James, Phelp, P. H.
In common parlance, often abridged to Ipecac, and in Ireland to Hippo. It is also obtained from the Psycho'tria emet'ica of Peru. The odour of the root is faint and peculiar; taste bitter, subacrid, and mucilaginous; both water and alcohol extract its virtues, which depend on a peculiar principle, called Emet'ia. It is emetic in large doses; sudorific in smaller.
