In the Blue Planet game, the Multiglands biological modification allows the user to secrete a number of different hormones and drugs into his system. However, the details of these effects are not described. Here is a brief list of some drugs that could be secreted, and their effects (as inspired by the Culture novels of Iain M Banks).

Hangover cure. It alters the body's metabolism of ethanol and methanol, causing the headache and nausea of a hangover to occur immediately, while slightly delaying the elimination of alcohol. Normally glanded just before going to sleep after drinking. When followed by snap the next morning, it can really annoy your friends.
