Your character has been poisoned. Poison will do damage over a period of time, until cured or it passes from your system.

— In-game description

Poisoned is a condition in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout: New Vegas.

Many Creatures bear poison in their fangs and stings. One of the most common sources for Poison in the Wasteland is the poison of the Radscorpion.


Poison can be healed by a potion of Antidote, or with rest, as the poison will leave the player's system after a period of time. The Perks Snakeater and Vault City Inoculations modify your Poison Resistance.
