Bipolar Bears is a line of combination vitamins and mood-altering drugs, produced by The Corporation and marketed primarily at teenage girls. Not much more is known about them, but the odds are that they’re basically chewable Prozac with added vitamin C and artificial orange flavouring.
Bynogol was the first drug created by Dr Phillip Wang for Calenture-Deutz. A hayfever treatment, it was retailed in both inhalant and pill forms. It was the drug that made Calenture-Deutz, their first real success.
Bynogol was one of the few drugs to be profitable enough to survive the demise of Calenture-Deutz, and it remains available via Rilke Pharmaceuticals.

Castran’s Binder is a purgative that is administered in some cases of heavy metal poisoning, particularly those where cadmium or closely related substances are the poisons.
As the name suggests, it is a binding agent, working on a molecular level to capture molecules of the heavy metal and carry them out of the body by the normal processes of elimination. It is known to be safe to administer to humans and Shorshians.

Miccrano is a traditional remedy for stomach upsets and digestive problems among the Filiaelian race.

An analgesic and healing promoter, QuixHeal is a trade name of a human-specific healing agent that assists the body in repairing the damage done by physical injuries.
QuixHeal can be combined with other painkillers and even consumed with alcohol with no ill-effects. At higher doses, it tends to cause drowsiness and deep sleep, but it continues to work on repairing the body even while the user is sound asleep.
The effects of Quixheal are limited, and it is not a substitute for major surgery. However, it will fix most bruises, scrateches, grazes, sprains and the like, up to hairline bone fractures. Anything more serious will require proper medical attention.

How metafictional can a metafictional drug get? Skyfish Testes is a strong contender for the most metafictional drug ever. Not only is it explicitly fictional in its own context, but that context is an hallucination occurring as part of a larger story, rendering it doubly fictional.
Skyfish Testes, if they existed, would be a treatment for cancer of the soul and mental cirrhosis – although not one that Delmar Insurance would cover. But they don’t exist, and to claim that they do is just silly.
Everyone knows that skyfish don’t have testes…
Vioplex is a pain killer produced by Pallogen. It is identical in formula to another drug created by Pallogen, HT1 – a drug that killed numerous test subjects by causing liver failures. Pallogen, although fully aware of the drug’s fatal nature, planned to market it anyway, since the profits to be made dwarfed any potential fine or court settlement it might cost them.
Fortunately, the involvement of the Leverage team in this case prevented the drug from ever being sold, and bankrupted Pallogen into the bargain.

Zembla-4 was an anti-asthma drug that was never actually offered for sale, due to a scandal that occurred around the time that it was going through the approvals process. Calenture-Deutz, the company behind the drug, had concealed a number of deaths among the children that it was tested upon.
The chief scientist on the project was a Dr Phillip Wang – whose murder after he threatened to blow the whistle on the deaths ultimately led to the exposure of the deaths and the utter collapse of Calenture-Deutz.

Zydrate is a highly addictive painkiller developed by GeneCo as one aspect of its highly lucrative business plan.
Zydrate is also sold in a debased street form, which is extracted from the bodies of the dead by grave-robbing drug dealers. Street Zydrate is of highly dubious and variable quality (although always lower quality than the real drug). Although oddly, it still looks exactly like the pure kind, no matter how long the person has been dead or what quantity of Zydrate was in their system.
