It is said that Ipec. should be given in the beginning of all intermittent fevers, if no other remedy seems clearly indicated. Very similar to Eup. in intermittent fever, but Eup. lacks the persistent nausea of Ipec., and the paroxysms are only partially developed, while Ipec. lacks the bone pains of Eup., yet the paroxysms are fully developed. Pain between shoulders, down back as if it would break, rigors, fever, vomiting of bile, and seldom thirst usher in the febrile state. Dry hacking cough; constipated with pleuritic stitches: Acon.; dry teasing constipated before and during chill: Rhus; constipated during chill and head: Bry.

Convulsions, from indigestion; weak, after menses, out of all proportion to the loss of blood. (L): Weak, after menses. Haemorrhages come with a gush; Ipec. ceases to be the remedy in headache when the patient becomes anaemic and dropsy threatens, it is then that China comes in; persistent nausea accompanies all the headache of Ipec.; when there is a steady flow of bright red blood give Ipec. and do not resort to applications, manipulations, etc. Ipec. is just as important for spasms as Bell. Ipec. does its best work when there is thirstlessness; it is considered a short acting drug. Like Lach., the pains fly from left side to right, reverse of Lyc., but with nausea, those of Cim. from side to side.
