The Effect of Yu Shu Dan

Effect

Taken orally, it has the action of causing resuscitation, resolving phlegm, getting rid of pestilent pathogenic factors and toxic material, purgating slowly, and descending the adverse flow of Qi. Applied externally, it functions in subduing swelling and dispersing masses.

Indications

Syndrome due to attack of pestilent pathogenic factors and phlegm retention, marked by distending full painful sensation in the stomach and intestines, vomiting, diarrhea, and skin and external diseases; including such diseases with the above symptoms as food poisoning, furuncle, boil and swelling.

Administrations

The ingredients are ground into powder and made into lozenges with the paste of Nuo Mi. 0.6-1 5 g of the lozenge is taken orally each time, twice daily. When applied externally, it is ground in vinegar and applied on the affected area. Because Qian Jin Zi and Hong Da Ji are both poisoning, the dosage for children should be reduced. Meanwhile, it is contraindicated for pregnant women, for She Xiang in it is aromatic and apt to drift off its channel.
