Medicine, also called industrial-tech medicine in the Health tab, is an expendable item used in doctoring.

Acquisition

Medicine can either be purchased from traders, looted from raiders, or crafted at a drug lab using 3 cloth, 1 herbal medicine and 1 neutroamine (skill requirement: intellectual 4+ and crafting 4+). Crafting medicine requires the "Medicine production" research to have been completed. Its synthesis speed is dependent on the Intellectual skill.

Efficiency

Superior to herbal medicine but inferior to glitterworld medicine.

Best used for treating diseases and infections; misused if for standard injuries (unless a colonist is bleeding out faster than the herbal medicine completes to patch the wound).

Good enough for surgical operations in many cases, with a low chance of failure. If the doctor is bionic-enhanced, trauma savant, drug-enhanced or inspired then you can guarantee the max 98% success rate for most surgeries.

It is adequate against plague and malaria with ordinary beds so long as the patients are resting full-time, well-fed, constantly treated and the doctor is healthy with medicine skill 8+.
