Med-X is a consumable in Fallout 4.


The following section is transcluded from Med-X. To modify, please edit the source page.

Med-X is the brand name of morphine, a potent opiate analgesic that binds to opioid receptors in the brain and central nervous system, reducing the perception of pain as well as the emotional response to pain. The active ingredient acts as a general anesthetic that dulls pain throughout the body and typically causes listelessness and lethargy.[1] In layman's terms, it's a powerful pain killer[2] delivered via a hypodermic needle.

Given its usefulness, Med-X is one of the more widespread pre-War chems, providing pain relief and recreation across the continent. Morphinists can be identified by contracted pupils and involuntary spasms.[3]


Med-X raises one's damage resistance by 25 and one's poison resistance by 250 for five minutes. It carries a 10% chance of addiction, and is a component of Endangerol syringes.


  • Med-X is rather common and can be found in chem and first aid boxes throughout the Commonwealth, as well as being purchased at doctors and chem dealers.

    Joana: "[SUCCEEDED] I... I didn't think it showed.I guess that it's worse than I thought. I... look, we can't talk here. If you think you can help me, follow me to my room, please."
