With the Fast Metabolism perk, you gain a 20% Health bonus when using Stimpaks.

Fast Metabolism is a perk in Fallout 3, Fallout: New Vegas and Fallout: The Roleplaying Game.

Effects

Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas

With the Fast Metabolism perk, the player character gains a 20% bonus when using stimpaks. In Hardcore mode, the multiplier increases the amount of healing per second making stimpaks an even better in-combat healing option. Players outside of Hardcore mode may be better served by simply applying multiple stimpaks from their Pip-Boy rather than investing in the perk.

This perk also affects (adapted) alien biogel, which is added to Fallout 3 with the Mothership Zeta add-on.

Fallout: The Roleplaying Game

When regaining one or more HP from any source other than rest, increase the total HP regained by +1 per rank in this perk.

Each time this perk is taken, the level requirement increases by 3.

Notes

Synergizes extremely well with Chemist, Better Healing, Cardiac Arrest Old World Blues (add-on) and a high Medicine skill.
