【EFFECTS】:Purging fire and resolving phlegm. 

【INDICATIONS】: Syndrome of phlegm and fire accumulation due to excess-heat and thick phlegm marked by fearfulness, madness, palpitation, fright, coma, or cough and asthma with thick phlegm, or stuffiness and distention of the abdomen, or dizziness, vertigo, tinnitus, insomnia and dreaminess, constipation, yellow thick coating of tongue, and slippery, rapid and forceful pulse.

【ANALYSIS OF FORMULA】: This formula is special for syndrome caused by excess-heat and thick phlegm. Mirabilite and chlorite-schist as principal herbs being dry and heavy in nature, is good at purging accumulated thick phlegm. Rhu­barb as an assistant herb, being bitter in flavor and cold in property, purges excess-heat and opens a passage for phlegm-fire downwared. Scutellaria root with bitter flavor and cold nature purges fire and clears heat in qi phase in the upper- jiao; eagle wood lowers qi rapidly, and is a guide for the other herbs. These two herbs are used together as adjuvant herbs. The joint use of the five herbs produces strong purging action. It is therefore a drastic formula to eliminate excess-heat and thick phlegm. The drastic action of this formula is harmful to the genuine-qi, so, never use it in weak constitution and pregnant women.

In clinical practice it can be used for schizphrenia, epilepsy and infantile con­vulsion due to accumulation of phlegm and fire.
