Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/FranBow'', we have an experimental drug called Duotine. Taking it causes the main character, Fran, to see a very twisted version of the world around her. However, it is also very helpful to her. She would not have been able to escape the hospital without it, and the drug is used throughout the game in order to further progress.

* Early on, [[ComicBook/AntMan (Gi)Ant Man]] and TheWasp in the MarvelUniverse took Pym Particle pills to grow or shrink. Now they can generate the particles at will. Animated versions of the two usually have belt or wrist devices that trigger size-changing. It should be noted that Pym Particles indeed power all versions; it's just the method of applying them that changes over the years/media.

* The ''TraumaCenter'' series has this in two flavors: phlebotonium "antibiotic" gel which is used as an antiseptic, surgical glue, or for instantly healing small lasceration and other very minor wounds (the latter property of which is lampshaded to hell and back on it's first appearance); and a phlebotonium serum know as "stabilizer" that increases the patient's vitals instantly upon being injected. The issue of why they don't just put critical patients on a drip of the stuff is HandWaved by stating it "artificially" raises vitals and is actually dangerous to use over prolonger periods.

* {{InjusticeGodsAmongUs}} features pills made from Kryptonian nanotechnology that amplifies someone's strength and durability to something comparable to Superman. It acts as the justification for why all the heroes and villains of otherwise varying strengths (i.e. Joker vs. Hawkgirl) can fight on equal footing.
