Regarding apomorphine,
    Consulting my PDR...apomorphine is a dopamine agonist, so I would 
presume similar side effects to other agonists. The agonist I'm familiar 
with is "Parlodel" (Sandoz corp), which is bromocriptine-mesylate. Side 
effects and incidence of adverse reactions are estimated to be at 
around 69% and include dizziness (8-16%), drowsiness (8%), fainting (8%), 
and syncope (1%). There are special precautions for persons who are 
experiencing hyperprolactinaemia, lactation, acromegaly, and Parkinsons. 
 Apomorphine itself is not listed in the PDR, but as an agonist of 
dopamine, this should be pretty close. Good luck.
