Why is IPECAC such a terrible item?
I've just been screwed over in what looked like an amazing run by picking up IPECAC. If you have one or two range upgrades then it'll only be able to hit enemies on the other side of the screen and will actually arc over enemies that are any closer then that.

Such a terrible tear effect, Lemon Mishap is more useful.

Everytime I got Ipecac I'm going Isaac D6 so all range items become Dmg :3

I actually got all the way to Mom's Heart with that and Isaac, and because of Ipecac...made Mom's Heart look like a complete ♥♥♥♥ing joke.

I need to disagree when you know how to use it effective you can breeze trought most enemys and bosses only red mom can be a nightmare (but same goes for Fetus in a Jar) but you should never and i repeat NEVER pick up 3 dollar bill when you have it screwed me quite some times ^^ but when you get bend spoon or even telephatie for dummys (maybe the only time this book is usefull) it can be realy op

IPECAC + my reflection = Instant shenanigans.

On all seriousness, IPECAC can be pretty bad if you don't know how to evade bombs quickly or if you derp and shoot it at the wall in a close radius.

Ipecac is a game-changer for The Binding of Isaac. It can either ruin your whole run, or, when you are skilled enough to get it working, make your run a simple ojective. I prefer Ipecac above alot of other Items.

Learn to deal with it, and Ipecac will make the entire game a joke. If you're hurting yourself, you just need to practice with it. Empty out a room and try lobbing the shots at a nearby wall just as you change directions. That's the key to dealing with chasing enemies, and the only difficult part left.
