Description
UPDATE
Some players reported that script is not working.
All dirty tricks with BaseID removed, the code is clean now.

If it STILL does not work, you should try to disable some of your mods before praying at the shrine.

Mirrors:
http://skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/22197

The bug description can be found here:
http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Drain_Vitality
http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Drain_Vitality

This is caused because the dragon version of Drain Vitality is linked to "Mark For Dead"'s words.

How to fix the bug?
1) Install the plugin. This plugin breakes the link between two shouts. However, the shout's dummy will still appear in the Shout's menu.
2) Go to any shrine of the Divines (Mara's, for example) and ask to "cure" you from this bug.

You still have to keep the plugin active waiting for the official patch. If you disable the plugin, the Drain Vitality bug can occur again.

PS
If you have all 3 Mark For Dead words, and you have cured the bug, you can safely remove the plugin. This bug occurs only when you learn a new MFD word, so no new words -> no bug.

@xXVebicXx, it shoudn't remove the original shout;
Any shout with description containing numbers is NOT original.

If you have any issues, revert to the bugged save and try the Unoffical Dawnguard Patch, it includes this fix now

uh.. this kinda helped.. it removed the glitched shout, but also removed the original shout, and if i try player.teachword (Shout id) it just says it isent the right id, or the id doesnt exist
so now i cant get the drain vitality shout back

@professor_moriarty, no, it doesn't fix the wall, it fixes the Dragon Shout. appearing when you learn the Marked For Death word
