Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from RadAway. To modify, please edit the source page.

One of the marvels of pre-War medical science, RadAway is a biomedical solution designed to bond with radioactive particles and remove them from the user's system with urine. It effectively purges the body of radiation, but has nasty side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, stomach pains, and headaches.[1][2][3] It has to be applied intravenously to work, making it a scary prospect for those afraid of needles.[4][5]

In Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics, interestingly RadAway can be addictive. It takes full effect only after 4 hours.

RadAway is also one of these games' higher-value items, and since you'll find far more than you'll ever realistically use, it is very good for making money.

It won’t feel good, but better a headache and some stomach problems for a couple of days than the long term effects of nuclear radiation! RadAway takes a little while to work."
