Notes Removes Frenzy buildup.

A Sedative is a consumable item in Bloodborne.


In-Game Description

Liquid medicine concocted at Byrgenwerth. Calms the nerves.
Those who delve into the arcane fall all-too-easily to madness, and thick human blood serves to calm the frayed nerves of these inquisitive minds. Naturally, this often leads to a reliance on blood ministration.



Removes Frenzy buildup. Resets Beasthood metre.


  • It takes a fraction of a second to use it, so use it wisely and strategically.
  • It shares the same animation as the Blue Elixir and Lead Elixir.
  • It is essentially the Antidote-equivalent for Frenzy.


  • From the description, it would seem that the Sedative is actually thick human blood. Perhaps it is a much different variant than the one players inject with the use of Blood Vials.
  • The Lonely Old Dear gives Sedatives to the Hunter after apparently losing her sanity, implying that she used these to calm her nerves.
  • The Frenzy buildup has a constant rate of affliction from all sources. However, the value of Insight that the player has will affect the Frenzy Resistance of players. In other words, the higher the Insight, the more quickly the Frenzy builds up.
