Morphine and Apomorphine Given at the Same Time.

Botanical name: 

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.
