_Abeyance_ suppresses the effects of a single curse on a creature. It does not restore any damage or drain that might have been caused by the curse. _Abeyance_ cannot suppress curses that cannot be removed by [_remove curse_](/spells/remove-curse), but it can suppress curses such as lycanthropy that require [_remove curse_](/spells/remove-curse) along with additional measures. An individual curse can be suppressed only once by abeyance, even if cast by a different caster. _Abeyance_ does not allow a creature to divest itself of cursed objects, though it can suppress a curse contracted from an object.
