      I've been looking at this for a while and the negatives of the overdrive serum are unclear. When it says 'it is removed from the soldiers inventory permanently', what does it really mean? Does it mean that once it is used, the item is gone forever and you need to make another one? Does it mean that it is simply a one use per mission item, and you can use it again the next mission? Or even that once a soldier uses it, that soldier can never use the item again but others can?
