How can I make myself throw up?

Asked by PacificRimjob (694points) February 25th, 2010

Okay, so I realize that it sounds like I’m trying to learn how to be bulimic, but I’m seriously not. I just have the problem of feeling rather nauseus at the moment and have tried to make myself throw up so that the feeling goes away yet can’t. I know the whole stick your finger in the back of your throat deal, but it’s never worked or me. I’ve been feeling sick for the past 4 hours, bordering on vomiting, although never actually getting there. Help!!! Is there any other way apart from the finger method that I can try?

Stick your fingers down your throat but make sure you trigger your gag reflex.
If this doesn’t work and you’re female. I’m free on Sunday

Take an emetic, like syrup of ipecac, if you have one on hand. Emetics are ingestible substances that induce vomiting. Adults should take 1 to 2 teaspoons of syrup of ipecac and then 1 cup of water. The syrup is safe if you take the proper amount.

I’ve heard of something using mustard and milk. I have no idea how to do it, though. Maybe google it?

Ipecac will make you vomit if you really really think you need to… I hate vomiting worse than anything, I’d rather be nauseated for hours than barf but to each his/her own I suppose.

@davidbetterman Jinx!

1. Stand near a toilet.
2. Spin around a few times.
3. Bend over said toilet.

Just take a nap and sleep through it.

Put a raw egg in warm milk. If that doesn’t make you throw up, I don’t know what will!

Eat this stuff called “Liquid Ass.” That should do the trick.
