Use in itemsEdit

Antiseptic, like most crafting ingredients, is never found in its pure form in the world. However, it can be obtained by breaking down junk items which contain antiseptic. If searching for antiseptic, it's advised to search for the items which break down into it.

  • Shipments of 25 units can be purchased from the roaming merchant Doc Weathers or from Doctor Sun in Diamond City.
  • fo4autGametitle-FO4 AUT One unobtainable pure form can be found in the "Brain extraction" room of the Mechanist's lair, inside of a strange medical device's glass case.


  • The refreshing beverage is worth less than its ingredients.
  • Antiseptic can be used to make RadAway for the purposes of profit.
  • As Antiseptic junk items are rather uncommon, buying shipments of it may be preferable towards mass crafting.
  • In Survival mode, refreshing beverage only removes 100 rads, but provides some of the fastest healing available and addiction treatment for drugs that have worn off.
  • Most recipes that require Antiseptic require Blood packs except for RadAway.
  • In Survival mode, RadAway inflicts Fatigue and Immunodeficiency, if paired with Medic and Chemist, it can heal a lot of rads, but should be used sparingly.
  • RadAway can be sold for more than what it costs to get rads purged at a doctor's clinic provided the player has a high enough barter skill.
  • With Refreshing beverage having low Rads reduction in Survival mode, and the sheer abundance of stimpaks and RadAway, it may be preferable to stockpile materials for the creation of glowing blood packs, as antiseptic and blood packs are often paired in crafting, and to keep Abraxo cleaners and Blood Sacs for Mentats, Mind Cloud syringe and Skeeto Spit respectively.
