RadAway is a consumable in Fallout 4.

Background

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.[1] It effectively purges the body of radiation, but has nasty side effects, including nausea, diarrhea, stomach pains, and headaches.[2][3][4] It has to be applied intravenously to work, making it a scary prospect for those afraid of needles.[5][6]

Characteristics

RadAway removes 300 rads over the course of five seconds. On Survival difficulty, this rate is drastically decreased.
