This formula is for the treatment of a wind heat external invasion exterior pattern in a person with a righteous qi vacuity and liver depression qi stagnation. There may also be phlegm nodulation and/or heat toxins. Although Xiao Chai Hu Tang is the classic Chinese formula for a shao yang division disease, one can use the above modification of this formula whether or not the patient has a shao yang pattern. In this case, the rationale for this formula is not based on Zhang Zhong-jings original indications but rather on an analysis of each ingredient.

In terms of disease diagnosis, this formula is for common cold and epidemic influenza with possible bronchitis and especially in women as opposed to men, and even more especially perimenstrually. However, if the patients pattern conforms, this formula may be taken by men and women alike and regardless of phase in menstrual cycle. For instance, this formula is also often indicated for postpartum fevers and flus and for the recurrent fevers, sore throats, and swollen glands of people with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
