[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]: It is a effective formula for treatment of internal accumulation of phlegm-heat with the attack of wind-cold on the exterior. Ephedra in the formula relieves the exterior syndrome by its pungent and warm properties and disperses the lung to relieve asthma, while gingko-nut astringes the lung to stop cough and resolves phlegm to relieve asthma. The two herbs work in combi­nation to reinforce asthma-relieving effect as well as preventing ephedra from con­suming the lung-qi so as to gain the result of both astringency and dipersion, and they are principal herbs. Perilla seed, bitter apricot kernel, pinellia tuber and colts­foot flower are- used as assistant herbs with the effects of lowering adverse flow of qi to relieve asthma and, resolving phlegm to relieve cough. Mulberry bark and scutellaria root as the adjuvant herbs clear away lung-heat to relieve cough and asthma. Licorice root moderates the properties of all the other ingredients in the formula and has the effect of resolving phlegm, playing role of dispatcher herb.

Today this formula is usually for treatment of internal accumulation of phlegm-heat with the attack of wind-cold on the exterior involved in chronic bron­chitis, bronchial astham and asthmatic bronchitis.

This formula and Minor Blue Dragon Decoction both can be used to treat asthma caused by internal accumulation of phlegm-heat with the attach of wind- cold on the exterior. However, the former is concurrently in charge of clearing away phlegm-heat, the latter particular stressed on warming and resolving cold fluid-retention.
