Combat Drug is taken by fighters (usually military personnel) prior to combat. [1] This drug considerably increases personal strength and endurance. The effect generally begins within a few minutes after ingestion, and generally lasts for several hours. Results may vary. When the effect wears off, the user typically experiences fatigue and some level of metabolic damage. [1]

Combat drugs appear as early as the TL–7 in modern form. They might appear earlier in certain civilizations with much higher levels of herbology or a more diverse selection of flora.
