RadAway is a consumable item in Fallout: New Vegas.
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. It effectively purges the body of radiation, but has nasty side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, stomach pains, and headaches. It has to be applied intravenously to work, making it a scary prospect for those afraid of needles.
This item looks similar to a blood pack, except with a short tube and a distinctive orange color. The effectiveness of RadAway is dependent on the medicine skill, meaning that the higher the player's medicine skill, the more Rads are removed.
