The homeopathic remedy Ipecacuanha is for people who are quick to irritate, who are full of contempt and full of desire - but they do not know what they really want. They are often very short-winded and tend to cough with every inhalation.

For the homeopathic remedy Ipecacuanha, it is typical that all complaints come to nausea, sometimes also vomiting. These people always feel as if they are tied up, and they are always afraid.

In addition, the mouth is particularly moist, forming a large amount of saliva. The larynx causes a sensation as if it were split.
