Antidotes cure the imbiber instantly from poisoning, but unlike the Elixir of Health, they don't heal hit points which may have been lost from poison. This items appears in Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur's Gate II.

Dropped as Loot: Edit

Other: Edit

  • During the quest Marek and Lothander, Lothander will give you an antidote. This is not to be confused with Marek's Potion of Antidote, which is used to cure the party of the slow poison that will kill them in ten days. This regular antidote can also be pickpocketed from Lothander or taken from his corpse, though doing so will result in the eventual death of the party, because the quest will then be unfinishable and the party will be unable to get Marek's half of the antidote.
  • Hull will give you one if you ask him for one during your return to Candlekeep in Chapter 6.

Baldur's Gate II: Shadow of AmnEdit

Baldur's Gate II: Throne of BhaalEdit


As the name implies, this potion will neutralize any poison of which the imbiber is currently suffering the effects. The cleansing is instant and the potion may only be used once.

Can be used in Edit


  • There is another potion which has the same name, but it will not cure poison; rather, it bestows a curse upon the consumer.
