There are NO OTC products that can induce vomiting safely if used repeatedly..
Syp of ipecac is used in the ER to induce vomiting when it is indicated, mixing it with 7 up or sprite may make it more palatable
You could try drinking warm saline water (a couple of glasses) though, sometimes it helps to induce vomiting ...
