First thigs first time for a little pharmacological lesson! This mission involves providing patients with the appropriate medicine for their ailments. This can be a little tricky, and the game employs the knowledge of real world medicine!
Boric acid, also known as acidum boricum, orthoboric acid and boracic acid, is a very weak acid and ionizes as a monobasic acid (i.e., acid containing only one replaceable hydrogen atom per molecule). It forms softy pearly-white, needlelike crystals that have a greasy feel. Boric acid has a number of medicinal uses. It is often used as a mild antiseptic, especially on yeast and fungal infections. Also, boric acid is an effective treatment for some skin conditions such as mild rashes and acne. Aqueous solution of boric acid also can be used as an eye wash.
Chloroquine phosphate is a prescription medication licensed to prevent or treat certain types of malaria infections. It is also used to treat another parasitic infection when the infection occurs outside the intestines (usually the liver). This infection is known medically as extraintestinal amebiasis.
Diazepam is used to relieve anxiety, muscle spasms, and seizures and to control agitation caused by alcohol withdrawal.
Fluoxetine (Prozac) is used to treat depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder (bothersome thoughts that won’t go away and the need to perform certain actions over and over), some eating disorders, and panic attacks (sudden, unexpected attacks of extreme fear and worry about these attacks). Fluoxetine (Sarafem) is used to relieve the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder, including mood swings, irritability, bloating, and breast tenderness. Fluoxetine is in a class of medications called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). It works by increasing the amount of serotonin, a natural substance in the brain that helps maintain mental balance.
Gabapentin capsules, tablets, and oral solution are used to help control certain types of seizures in people who have epilepsy. Gabapentin capsules, tablets, and oral solution are also used to relieve the pain of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN; the burning, stabbing pain or aches that may last for months or years after an attack of shingles). Gabapentin extended-release tablets (Horizant) are used to treat restless legs syndrome (RLS; a condition that causes discomfort in the legs and a strong urge to move the legs, especially at night and when sitting or lying down). Gabapentin is in a class of medications called anticonvulsants. Gabapentin treats seizures by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Gabapentin relieves the pain of PHN by changing the way the body senses pain. It is not known exactly how gabapentin works to treat restless legs syndrome.
Oxycodone is used to relieve moderate to severe pain. Oxycodone is in a class of medications called opiate (narcotic) analgesics. It works by changing the way the brain and nervous system respond to pain. Oxycodone is also available in combination with acetaminophen (Endocet, Percocet, Roxicet, Tylox, others); aspirin (Endodan, Percodan, Roxiprin, others); and ibuprofen (Combunox).
Paracetamol or acetaminophen is a widely used over-the-counter analgesic (pain reliever) and antipyretic (fever reducer). It is commonly used for the relief of headaches and other minor aches and pains and is a major ingredient in numerous cold and flu remedies. In combination with opioid analgesics, paracetamol can also be used in the management of more severe pain such as post-surgical pain
basically ibuprofin, need to look up better definition
Thioridazine is used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia (a mental illness that causes disturbed or unusual thinking, loss of interest in life, and strong or inappropriate emotions) in people who have already been treated with at least 2 other medications and have not been helped or who have experienced severe side effects. Thioridazine is in a group of medications called conventional antipsychotics. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain.
Vancomycin is used to treat colitis (inflammation of the intestine caused by certain bacteria) that may occur after antibiotic treatment. Vancomycin is in a class of medications called glycopeptide antibiotics. It works by killling bacteria in the intestines. Vancomycin will not kill bacteria or treat infections in any other part of the body when taken by mouth. Antibiotics will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections.
Note: Be careful and follow the instructions carefully, you’ll suffer a 5 minute lockout if you give the wrong medication!
The goal here is to cure the ailments of the individual patients. We’ll need to read their clipboard for each patient and find the appropriate medicine. You can do this yourself by reading our lovely ‘cheat sheet’ of the meds above. Ot follow along below to ready the solutions!
Ideally, you’ll want to pick up all of the meds and get them in your inventory!
Diagnose and treat the first patient
Breathing Problems, Muscle Spasms
Give the patient Diazepam
Diagnose and treat the second patient
Headache, nausia, fever, vomiting. Blood test confirms presence of Plasmodium falciparum.
Give the patient Chloroquine
Diagnose and treat the third patient
Fever, chills and severe shaking, confusion and dizziness, small red dots on skin, rapid breathing and heart, reduced urination. Cleaned and bandaged a nasty wound on this one, but it still may have become infected.
Give the patient Vancomycin
Agressive behavior, hallucinations, delusions, excessive production of saliva, fever, sweating and a sustained erection. This is rabies and at this point, I can only make the patient comfortable. My father’s work with genetics could have saved this man, if only I could locate his diary. All of the clues to its location I recorded in my own diary…
Patient #4 is non-curable and all meds are removed from your inventory before this step
Find the Diary of Dr. Varias
Look to the table in the middle of the tent.
Read the Diary of Dr. Varias
If you look at the painfully obvious clue on the left side.. “Chemistry” then look on to the page on the right, they look remarkably like the chemical element symbols from the Periodic Table of Elements! (Hope you all payed attention in school!)
If not, here’s a quick lesson. On the periodic table, each element is represented by a symbol and an atomic number.
What we’re going to do, is match the symbols in the right page of the journal above, to the symbols on the periodic table.
THEN – we need to take those atomic numbers, and translate them to the numbers to the corresponding letters in the english alphabet. Fun right?!
So, for instance.. He = Helium, with an Atomic Number of “2” , the second letter in the alphabet is “B” .. He = B .. You’ have to do that for each symbol in the journal page above.
I mean do you really want to do that? Of course you don’t, cause we already did for you!
I Asked The Old Drinkers at the Tavern About My Father Some Recalled He Spent Nights With His Local Mistress There.
“Good with a pitchfork and that is not all”
This woman is long gone, but perhaps something remains.
Head for the Tavern in town – it is just down the road from your current location.
Make your way upstairs, to a room at the end of the hall, look for a photo of a woman with a pitchfork!
The back of the picture from the wall:
Decipher the clues from the note to locate the research. Head for the Church coordinates: 877,1212
Go to the north east side outside the church and find the dirt mound at coordinates 896,1221
Open the dirt mount, find a laptop. Use said laptop.
There is a message written within us all. My research is understanding the meaning of the message written between 45477804 to 45481340.
The link is here, and to understand my research, you need to understand the link.
Put the 2 numbers into google (Search “45477804 45481340″) and you will find out that the gene name is “UROD”. Since UROD did not work as the password, we did some more research and trial and error inputs. Do a new Google search of “UROD” and the first result will take you here. On this page, third paragraph down, it states:
How are changes in the UROD gene related to health conditions?
porphyria – caused by mutations in the UROD gene
So we input porphyria and BOOM! Success.
