I think the BoVD revision of Tanbrosh is confusing. For one thing, it blows the price proportions way out of line. A roughly equal drug is luhix, but it costs 2000gp per dose. For another thing, and maybe this is a question on BoVD drugs in general, if a player makes the first save and misses the second, does the character get only the secondary (good) effects and not the initial (bad) effects? Seems odd. When does the character save versus the addiction, upon first imbibing the tanbrosh?
In any case, I recommend dropping the addiction rating to Extreme. It is far more sensible for such a cheap drug.
