The potion of extreme power is a potentially useful potion originally in NetHack: The Next Generation, which also appears in Slash'EM Extended and SLASHTHEM.

As long as the potion is noncursed, quaffing it will increase both your health and your maximum health by the same amount: 1-10 points if uncursed, 1-20 points if blessed. Note that it will not set your hit points to the max like the potion of full healing.

If the potion is cursed, however, it will reduce both your health and maximum health by 1-10 points. It will never lower your hit points below 1, so the potion won't kill you, though a nearby monster might.
