|For the Rad-X that appears in the Fallout series, see Rad-X.|
“Anti-radiation chems to be taken before exposure. No known side effects.”
It is an anti-radiation chem to be taken before exposure (unlike RadAway, which removes the effects of radiation after a person gets irradiated).
- Can be purchased from Vance in the Hub's Old Town.
- Can be purchased from the shopkeeper in the Cathedral.
- In The Hub at the Water Merchants in the house of the Children of the Cathedral, there is a locked room that can be picked. Inside that room, in a bookcase, Rad-X as well as RadAway can be found.
- In the Boneyard Library.

- Two in the toxic caves. One is on the ground floor, inside a locker. The second is on the first floor, inside a locker.
- In Vault City courtyard, inside a desk.
- Can be purchased from sub-amenities office B in Vault City Downtown
- Also can be purchased from Randal in the chief amenities office.
- In Vault City vault level 2, inside a locker.
- In Vault City vault level 3, inside a locker.
- The effects of Rad-X are stackable up to two subsequent doses, but taking an immediate third dose of Rad-X has no effect. This is due to the fact that in the original Fallout, taking two doses of Rad-X granted 100% radiation resistance, enough to survive the most irradiated place on the map for several hours.
- Despite having no harmful effects, in Fallout Tactics it is possible to overdose if taken too quickly or alongside other chems, depending on Endurance.
