Morphine and Apomorphine Given at the Same Time.
It is commonly believed by practitioners in general that these two remedies should not be given together. In conditions where they are both needed I have given them together, hypodermically. I have obtained the emetic effect of the apomorphine as satisfactorily as when given alone, and the morphine effect follows in a few minutes.
I know of one case, however, of alcoholic delirium, where the two remedies given together caused a very dangerous collapse.
