For an overview of stimpak types in all games, see Stimpak.

Super stimpak is a more advanced version of the regular stimpak found in Fallout: New Vegas. While it heals more severe wounds, it also has unpleasant side effects.

The super version comes in a hypodermic, but with an additional vial containing more powerful drugs than the basic model and a leather belt to strap the needle to the injured limb.


In addition to healing, the game also adds the debuff "stimpak sickness" which happens after using a super stimpak. Its effects are STR -1 and AGL -1 and its duration lasts for around 3–4 minutes, and cannot be cured by Fixer but can be fixed with Buffout. It is very problematic, especially in combat, as it may cause the player to become overencumbered, and therefore slower in a critical situation.
