Drapes (Der Frauenarzt, March, 1892) says this remedy, in simple atony of the uterus, is a powerful agent in producing uterine contraction during the first and second stages of labor.
In general, two or three doses of from 10 to 15 drops of the wine of ipecac, given at intervals of ten minutes, produce, in a short time, marked activity of uterine action and a rapid birth. It is much better than ergot, as it does not produce tetanic contraction, but only induces normal and regular expulsive efforts.—The Therapeutic Gazette, July 15, 1892, p. 481.
