[ANALYSIS OF FORMULA]: It is a representative formula for increasing the body fluid and moistening dryness to relieve constipation.

Being sweet flavor and cold nature, ophiopogon root can moisten dryness; while rehman­nia root can nourish yin. They act as the assistant herbs. The main purpose of this formula is to increase the body fluid but not for purging. So large dosage is needed for relieving constipation. If constipation is not relieved yet after taking the decoc­tion, then taking it again or adding rhubarb and mirabilite in the formula.

It is set up for the case of insufficiency of the body fluid without severe dry constipation. So it is not advisable to apply it to case of insufficiency of the body fluid with severe dry constipation
