Pinellia Formula is available by Honso Kampo
The chief herb, ban xia, disperses clumps, stops vomiting, and eliminates focal distention. Gan jiang, one of the deputy herbs, expels cold. Huang qin and huang lian drain heat from the upper and middle burners. Thus the deputies, together with the chief herb, treat the cold-heat complex. Ren shen and da zao benefit the middle burner qi and prevent the chief and deputy herbs from injuring the normal qi. The envoy, zhi gan cao, helps the assistant herbs tonify the middle burner qi and harmonizes the actions of the other herbs. Therefore the main function of the formula is to regulate the stomach qi disharmony due to a cold-heat complex.
