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.
