Let's say the first brings the player to 18/25. Drinking another !Toughness again results in a random gain.
This is a known issue. It can be mitigate somewhat by removing the random gain and replacing it with +10 after 18. There's still some problems as certain values (say 18/50 dex) are more useful than others. The random gain after 18 was put in to add some flavor. However, I'm not so certain it's worth it.
