Also known as Britaject and Apokyn
Apomorphine (Apokyn, Ixense, Spontane, Uprima) is a non-selective dopamine agonist which activates both D1-like and D2-like receptors, with some preference for the latter subtypes. It is historically a morphine decomposition product by boiling with concentrated acid, hence the -morphine suffix. Apomorphine does not actually contain morphine or its skeleton, or bind to opioid receptors. The apo- prefix relates to it being an aporphine derivative.Source: Wikipedia
