This page is a list of all potions in ADOM. To drink a potion, press shift-D and select the potion you wish to drink.

Research has shown that most if not all potions slightly increase satiation value when drunk. The vast majority of potions will increase satiation by 100, about 1/5th what a Large ration gives. Like food, they grant more satiation if blessed, and there are some potions that grant more than 100 satiation. Known satiation values have been listed on the table.
