|For an overview of the consumable, see RadAway.|
RadAway is not addictive. This item looks like a blood pack with "RadAway" written on the label, although it also has a short tube sticking out of the bottom and a distinctive orange color compared to a typical blood pack's dark red. It can be found in almost every medical or science facility and can often be found in first aid boxes that hang on walls or are kept on shelves.
It can also be bought from a variety of doctors in the Capital Wasteland. The effectiveness of RadAway is dependent on the player character's Medicine skill, meaning that the higher the player character's Medicine skill, the more Rads are removed.

- Six in the Wheaton armory.
- Six in the Franklin Metro utility.

- RadAway has a dull glow, making it easier to find in the dark, though not as strong a glow as a Nuka-Cola Quantum. There is also a readable label marked "RadAway" written on it. This makes it easier to distinguish from a blood pack.
- One can obtain a large number of these by trading tech with Henry Casdin at Fort Independence. See the unmarked quest The Outcast Collection Agent to see exchange details.
- RadAway can be received from Winthrop in the Museum of History for five pieces of scrap metal. See the repeatable quest This Old House.
- RadAway can sometimes be obtained from Moira Brown, after contracting radiation poisoning in the quest Wasteland Survival Guide.
- RadAway bears a striking resemblance to a real-world unit of fresh frozen plasma (which would be a viable medium for such a chemical).
