Lapis 16 was designed to replace several popular patent remedies for treatment and prevention of acute infections, such as cold, flu, ear infection, and skin rash and for phlegm-wind disorders (e.g., epilepsy, shoulder bursitis). Several popular patent remedies used in China, such as Baoying Dan, Huichun Dan, and Houzao San, are indicated for preventing and treating ailments in children, but they are unavailable due to their inclusion of undesirable ingredients, which have been left out of this formulation. Lapis 16 includes wind dispelling herbs (siler, mentha, cicada, and arctium), phlegm resolvers (peucedanum, fritillaria, bamboo sap, borneol, and platycodon), and herbs for promoting good digestive function (atractylodes, astragalus, ginger, cardamon, and licorice). A unique component of this formulation is lapis, which is used in China to resolve phlegm and settle wind. Lapis 16 differs from other formulas for prevention and treatment of common acute ailments, such as Jade Screen Tablets and Ilex 15, in that it is designed to treat the person who already suffers from a congestive condition that might be due to something other than an acute ailment, such as allergies or excessive mucus congestion from food stagnation. Thus, for people who have persistent sinus congestion, this might be a more suitable preventive remedy than Jade Screen Tablets, while for those who are already ill with a cold or flu, this formula is used when early treatment has not prevented full development of symptoms. For purposes of treating wind-phlegm disorder, it can be combined with a wind settling formula such as Gastrodia 9 or Otolith Tablets, or a phlegm-damp cleansing formula, such as Arisaema Tablets or Bamboo 11.
