A powerful anti-addictiondrug, Addictol is an effective pre-War medicine that works both physically and psychologically to remove both the symptoms of drug abuse and the craving. However, it does not prevent relapse, especially in cases of long-term drug abuse. It generally takes a few hours to work and has a number of side-effects, including nausea.[Non-game 1]
Addictol has the appearance of a small inhaler, the same model as the psychoactive drug Jet. It cures the user of all addictions when consumed. In survival mode, using it increases thirst by 62.5 points.
Its functionality is very similar to Fixer, only without the woozy after-effect.
↑The Sole Survivor: "What's Addictol? How does it work?" Rachel: "Addictol works both physically and psychologically to remove both the symptoms and the need. It's very effective. However, if the patient doesn't want to quit, he or she will just go back to using." (Rachel's dialogue)
↑Bobby De Luca: "I want to get clean." Rachel: "I can help you, but you're going to have to trust me."
Bobby De Luca: "Is it going to hurt?"
Rachel: "You may feel uneasy for a few hours while the Addictol takes effect. But then you'll feel better than you ever have before."
Bobby De Luca: "Thanks for being honest."

↑Fallout: The Roleplaying Game Rulebook p.166: "A powerful and effective pre-War medicine which cleanses the body of the effects of addiction and the withdrawal symptoms that accompany it. It doesn’t, however, prevent subsequent addictions, especially in the cases of long-term or habitual drug abuse. It can take some time to work, especially in severe cases, and tends to have a few side-effects, such as nausea and dizziness, while it is taking effect."
