Mel uses Medicine on herself.
|Description||Removes the negative blue Status Effects Flu, Frozen, and AntiBlue.|
Medicine (ティア Tia?, "Tear") is a 2nd-level Blue Element and consumable item in Chrono Cross. Nullifying the Blue Elemental status effect Flu, Frozen and AntiBlue, Medicine can be purchased in Guldove and Marbule from the Demi-human merchants there. Lisa in Another World's Termina also stocks the item. In both Home and Another World, the merchant in Arni sells Medicine. At all locations, the price for one dose is 15 G each. A chest in Hydra Marshes (Home World) contains a free Medicine.
A character can equip Medicine only to the 2nd level Element Grid spot, but it can be allocated multiple times, at the limit of 5 Medicine per slot. Because of this, Medicine can be used multiple times through a battle, unlike other Elements, which are limited to one use, excluding Riddel's use of SnakeFangs. If additional unequipped Medicines reside in reserve, they will restock after each battle in which they are used. Medicine can be consumed outside of battle to cure Status Effect as well.
Using Medicine causes a giant blue orb to hover above the caster, after which, a pool of blue light rises around the target's feet in a swirl of blue sparkles.
When one is sick with the Flu, consuming medicine ensures a speedy recovery. All consumable Elements have names that are synonymous with the word medicine or with specific medical treatments for those real-life status ailments.
