Potions are used throughout the game. There are the so-called "normal" potions, mutagenic potions and a few others. They can be used to increase the regeneration rate of character statistics like vitality and endurance, or they can be used to temporarily increase the base amount of those same statistics. They can also be used to nullify effects like toxicity or drunkenness, or to see in the dark.

Potion toxicity Edit
The ratings below are out of 100
- Low (10–14)
- Medium (15–20)
- High (21–25)
- Very High (26–30)
The only way to reduce the toxicity of consumed potions and maintain their intended effects, is to only use ingredients with the same secondary substance: Albedo.
Meditating for 1 hour is sometimes enough to get rid of all toxicity in Geralt's body, enabling the player to keep effects of potions that last more than 1 hour with no toxicity in order to drink other potions.
