If anti-vomiting drugs are taken, the risk of vomiting is very low and problems are rare, except in cases where vomiting is a known specific problem. In these cases alternative methods should be explored.
Unless there are specific questions of hypersensitivity or aller- gy (which are very unusual), the anti-emetic ‘Maxolon’ is rec- ommended. The dose (60mg stat or 20mg 3x/day for 2 days) is independent of the quantity of the lethal drug.
If vomiting does occur, the individual should bring up (vomit up) as much of the drug from their stomach as they can and the attempt to end their life should be abandoned. Ipecac Syrup can be used to encourage vomiting. It is advisable to have some on hand and can be obtained from the local pharmacy.
