Rem Cough Syrup

Info on a cough syrup called REM.It was manufactured, I believe by Maryland Pharmaceutical around the 1940's. I think it had a blue bottle with a orange circle with the name REM printed on it ## I'm sorry, but I can't find any information on this, which really isn't very surprising for that old of a product. There were also many differences back then for what were considered pharmaceutical products. Does anyone have information on this? ## my mother use to give to to us in the early 60's. ## I used it in the 1980s and it worked well. I don't tolerate the chemical ones. I remember REM had ipecac, lobelia, squills and other things...I just remember those because ipecac was used as an emetic and when I looked up lobelia and squills they were listed in an herbal book...

I Cannot Vomit Ever

i can not vomit ever, i just dry heave, I am after fundoplication, but had the wrap removed. Pain and nausea is unbereable, ## What type of medications have you tried for it? Are you still under a doctor's care? There are various medications available to treat GERD, which is usually why a Nissen Fundoplication is performed. Proton Pump Inhibitors are the most commonly prescribed: ## I can not vomit, which is a problem I feel really nauseas and sick but can not induce vomiting, it is not normal. I even tried ipecac but nothing, just terrible cramps, I am at a loss as for what to do

medications containing ipecac

I am looking for any OTC products that contain ipecac ## You can purchase just straight Ipecac at your local pharmacy over the counter, most people keep around in case of posioning emergencies. You will not find it included in meds because it is used to induce vomiting, and nobody wants to add an extra side effect to something.
