Serum Pain Medication Failure

Serum Pain Medication Failure

Hi! Would you happen to know any fics that involve medication/sedatives not working because of the serum? Thanks!

I swear I’ve done this, but I couldn’t find the list, so here are the ones I can remember.  I know this features in a lot of fics, so maybe others have suggestions.  I feel like I’m missing an obvious one.


Analgesic by Ambrosian: “There’s this, this perverse little quirk of human
biology, this accident of nature – Look. The doctors, and they’re my
doctors, you know I bought only the very best. They’re saying that,
well, something something cortisol hyperproduction, secondary adrenal
something, the relevant point being, don’t think I didn’t see your eyes
roll, how you can still be so prissy with that thing lodged in you? They
said they can’t actually find a way to operate to take the hunk of
metal out of your body until you’re not all tensed up from pain and
pumping distress hormones like they’re on sale. They haven’t been able
to tweak the morphine enough; there’s still nothing that can stand up to
your metabolism. No, uh, our best idea is a lot less… conventional than
that.”(This one’s pretty much just porn, guys.)

It’s Only Half Past (the Point of Oblivion) by LadyHabren: “I think it’s generally agreed that all of Steve’s
senses are powered up by the serum? He can hear people whispering on the
other side of the room, probably sees a hell of a lot further, etc. But there are definite downsides. How does Steve control this side effect of the serum?”Captain America is more than a man – he is a hero, he is an ideal, he
is pure muscle held together by patriotism and moral fibre… And not
even Captain America can fight it when his own brain turns against him. I’m gonna be honest, by the time I got to the end of this story and
went back to look at the prompt, I realized my fill was so different
that I intitially thought I was looking at the wrong prompt… But I
hope it’s enjoyable nonetheless.

Not About Superheroes (A Private Little War) by AnnaFugazi:
In less than a year, Steve has been brought back from the dead, adapted
to a whole new world, plunged right back into battle again, and moved in
with a bunch of superheroes. He’s handling everything remarkably well.
Except when he’s not.

Shattered by sabrecmc:
Tony watches the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier unfold.

(deals with Steve’s trip to the hospital after his fall from the helicarrier and basically nothing working right on him with Tony thrown in for good measure)
