BackgroundEdit

This section is transcluded from RadAway. To change it, please edit the transcluded page.

RadAway is an intravenous[1][2] chemical solution that bonds with radioactive particles and removes them from the user's system.[3] While Rad-X is designed to increase the body's natural resistance to radiation, RadAway is designed to be used after exposure. Purging the body of radiation takes some time complete, and anyone using it will experience its adverse effects: It's a potent diuretic and can cause nausea, diarrhea, stomach pains and headaches.[4][5][6]

In Fallout, Fallout 2 and Fallout Tactics, interestingly RadAway can be addictive. It takes full effect only after 4 hours.

RadAway is also one of these games' higher-value items.
