"This formula can be used in treating a wide variety of complaints There are three criteria for diagnosing heat in the Liver channel (the condition for which this formula is indicated); a wiry, rapid pulse; a red tongue or red dots along the sides of the tongue; and dark urine or urinary difficulty. The use of this formula should be distinguished from that of Augmented Rambling Powder (jia wei xiao yao san), which is used in treating constrained Liver qi with some symptoms of heat. That formula in indicated for a condition that lacks the full force of heat excess. The herbs in this formula cool heat without causing stasis, dispel the pathogenic qi, and cause it to descend without injuring the normal qi. It is an excellent formula for treating the symptoms and underlying mechanisms associated with Liver and Gallbladder disorders." - Bensky: Chinese Herbal Medicine Formulas & Strategies.*
