Digestive medicine is a type of medicine that is used to alleviate stomach aches. They sometimes are needed to be dissolved into water, such as alcacelcer tablets.
In 1964, Naked Snake utilized digestive medicine in his field medical kit during the Virtuous Mission and Operation Snake Eater. The Spetsnaz forces also often carried them with during their patrols in Tselinoyarsk.

Behind the scenes
The Digestive Medicine is a healing item that appears in Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater, which is used in the Survival Viewer's Cure menu. The player has limited quantities at the start of the game, but can procure more either via ready-made variants in certain locations, or by creating some with the Russian False Mango.

- ―Intestinal medicine description in Metal Gear Survive
A similar item known as the intestinal medicine will make a return in Metal Gear Survive, where it served a similar purpose to that of digestive medicine. Five of them were issued out as an administrator's gift to the player upon joining the open beta, alongside the other four healing items. Unlike the daily login bonuses, the administrator's gift could be kept in the supply box indefinitely. Its weight in Survive is 0.2 KG, and it can be crafted by mixing together one tarragon and two sets of alcohol, plus 10 KUB.
