No. It's a major flaw in the design, given the short duration. There are several mods out there that allivate this problem.

The point of potions is that you are supposed to prepare for fights in advance (more similar to the books). However, they generally do not last very long so you might want to get a mod that doubles or triples potion duration.

I've read the novels, and I understand the idea behind the potions. But I feel they haven't implemented them adequately. A CRPG has other mechanics than "real life". ;)
