Indications: Heat in both the interior and exterior from Wind/Heat invasion with internal Heat already present, or from Wind/Heat that invades both interior and exterior at the same time. Strong fever and chills, headache, dizziness, red sore eyes, trouble swallowing, nasal congestion with thick sticky yellow phlegm. Lung and Stomach Heat causes dry mouth with bitter taste, distention of the chest and abdomen, constipation, dark scanty urination, T- greasy yellow coat, P- full rapid, or wiry slippery.

This is a variation of Liang Ge San. Fang Feng Tong Shen San is used for excess in the interior and exterior, which may also be interpreted as simultaneous Taiyang and Yangming. This formula is recommended for all Wind/Heat that is showing signs of internal Heat so as to not let the pathogen penetrate deeper. It is also used for skin disorders, mania, intestinal Wind, obesity, and influenza.
