Damage Health is an adverse effect that can occur to both the Dragonborn or any other target. Damage Health causes a loss of health by a specified amount, over time. The Damage Health effect is always instant. However, there is a similar effect known as Lingering Damage Health which does damage over time.


The following alchemical ingredients have the damage health effect, along with where on the effects list it appears for each.

There are some ingredients that have a higher Damage Health effect than others. For example, a River Betty does 75 Damage Health, but a Nirnroot only does 30. The highest damage health effect belongs to the Jarrin Root, at 500, but there is only one Jarrin Root in the entire game, and it is a quest item.
