Anti-radiation chems to be taken before exposure. No known side effects.

Rad-X is a chem in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and Fallout Tactics.

It's an anti-radiation chem to be taken before exposure (unlike Rad Away, which removes the effects of radiation after a person gets irradiated).

Fallout 2


  • 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.

Fallout 3

Rad-X is an anti-radiation chemical that can significantly reduce the danger of irradiated areas. When combined with an Advanced Radiation Suit, Rad-X can—even at moderate medical skill levels—create near-immunity to radiation.

Rad-X is best used in heavily irradiated areas. It is reasonably common and can be used frequently. Like Stimpaks and Rad-Away, Rad-X is non-addictive. Taking multiple doses of Rad-X does not increase the total radiation resistance (the effects do not stack). Instead, the drug's active time is lengthened (the effective time stacks).


Rad-X appears in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout 3 and Fallout Tactics.


A new drug under development (CBLB502), which prevents radiation from damaging healthy cells, may make this a real drug instead of a fictional one.

Rad-X may be a form of iodine which can be used to prevent damage to the thyroid gland from absorbing radiated iodine in water, air and the like.
