I could have sworn that one of the tutorial journal entries mentioned that meditation could be used to remove potions prematurely (before their duration would normally expire), however I don't see such an option either on the meditate menu, or on the drink potion menu itself.

Is it possible to end a potion's effect prematurely? Cat loses its usefullness quite quickly once you leave the dark areas, and I'd rather both avoid the continued visual bleaching effect, and the reduced damage to monsters that comes with it.

When you open the meditation menu, you can choose to rest for a specific duration. If you do that, any potion effect will have timed out after your rest.

Is there no way to selectively remove potions though? – Raven Dreamer May 19 '11 at 17:20
@Raven there is no way that I know of. – Mad Scientist May 19 '11 at 17:41
For what it's worth, the game tells you to meditate to end potions' effects early. – Raven Dreamer Jun 19 '11 at 21:12
