* 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.

* ''Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined'' features magical pills, called chamalla, which are used by holy oracles and priests to induce visions-- and which are, somehow, also a kind of cancer treatment. When cancer-ridden President Roslin starts to take them, they proceed to trigger wild prophetic hallucinations which help to chart the course of the plot for several seasons.
