No it was before those books even came out. I am trying to remember but I think it was around the time that advanced players guide first got released that we started playing because I was using an alchemist and it was still a new class at the time.
Also we did have something that we were reading offline the rules for it. I could be remembering the rules wrong or we could have been using it entirely wrong but it was something that we were able to get with level 5 gold. I'm pretty sure something in there is completely wrong either in my description of it or we'd totally f***** up how much it cost. But yeah this is released within the first few years of Pathfinder. It could have been entirely removed for all I know. Heck it could even be something that was from 3.5 that my GM accidentally ported into this game without compensating for anything.
My current GM just reminded me that it had some completely on assuming name like "Tin Cup".
In all likelihood probably a misunderstanding of the rules by my GM. Odds are it probably only function once per day if it was obtainable at 5th level and was essentially a never-ending cure light potion.
