Wen Shang elaborated Chen Shiwen's formula Xiao Yao Wan 800 years later, adding Gardenia Zhi Zi and Moutan Mu Dan Pi to clear Heat in the Liver and Liver Blood. It is also known as Dan Zhi Xiao Yao Wan. This approach has proven more successful in the clinic for the treatment of PMS, given that most premenstrual problems are aggravated by Liver Heat. Recommended dosing is given between ovulation and the first day of the period. A course of treatment may take four to five months. (Fratkin, Chinese Herbal Patent Medicines)
