List of fictional medicines and drugs

This is a list of fictional medicines and drugs from works of fiction (usually fantasy or science fiction). Some of the items listed as medicines or drugs, may be used as both or in other capacities, but fictional works are often vague on such distinctions. Grouping is done by what seems most likely.

Fictional medicines

To be added

* * Adneman - "Desperate Housewives" - A fictional painkiller that was used by Mike Delfino to relive his pain after car accident (S04E07 - You Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover)
* Adrenochrome - supposedly taken directly from the adrenaline gland of a living human being, used in the 1999 film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
* Anaproviline - "Star Trek"
* Aphrodite - " Get Backers" - A white powder which was from the Venus De Milo storyline. It is highly expensive and addictive and can be taken via needle although it is unclear as to whether it is administered subcutaineously, intramuscularly, or via IV. Its effects are severely dibilitating, and on one character induces paranoia, catatonia, and loss of the ability to walk. Apparently rare even within the Limitless Fortress. Hardened and compacted, Aphrodite was fashioned into a fake Venus.
* Backlash - "Blackcollar" - A drug taken to greatly improve the speed and reflexes of elite commandos known as the Blackcollar during the war between humans and an alien race called Ryqril. Together with Idunine for health and geriatic effects, an RNA derivative to speed up learning, and the very best psychological and anti-interrogation training, it created more effective warriors than anything known in previous human history. During and after the war the Backlash drug was mostly destroyed by the alien victors, who didn't want more Blackcollars being trained in secret, though it is hoped that instructions on how to make the drug still exist. Little is known about the drug itself.

Not very chemically addictive, but causes powerful psychological dependence in humans (although not in elves). Addicts are called "dust heads" and can be identified by the glittery aura around them, as well as by the fact that they walk into walls. Apparently hallucinogenic, users 'babble about faeries'.
