Indications: mild chills alternating with pronounced fever, bitter taste in mouth, fullness in the chest and hypochondria, may vomit up bitter or sour fluids, thirst with no desire to drink, T- red with a thick greasy coat that may be yellow or white, P- wiry slippery (may be soft). Damp/Heat and turbid Phlegm in the Shaoyang, alternating between the Wei and Ying levels attempting to go deeper in the body.

This formula is basically Wen Dan Tang with Qing Hao (to vent exterior), Huang Qin (to clear interior), and Bi Yu San (relieve toxicity and Damp). This formula is slightly less dispersing of the exterior than Xiao Chai Hu Tang, but is better at draining the interior Shaoyang aspects of Heat and Damp.
