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.
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.
