Stemona Tablets is based on the well-known Ermiao San, the simple combination of phellodendron and red atractylodes, used for damp-heat disorders such as skin eruptions, vaginal infections, and eczema. The formula has been expanded to become a general anti-infection prescription that also treats lung/sinus infections and intestinal infections by inclusion of two broad spectrum antiseptic herbs: stemona and sophora. The person who is susceptible to persistent or recurrent infections, which are usually those of damp-heat nature, often has an underlying syndrome of stomach/spleen weakness with dampness accumulation and weakened immune functions. Red atractylodes disperses stagnated moisture; changium is a tonic, considered similar in nature to codonopsis (its name, Ming Dan Shen, translates as bright codonopsis), which moistens the lungs, expels phlegm, harmonizes the stomach and acts as a digestive tonic (together with stemona, it helps treat lung disorders). Shen-chu is an herbal complex that promotes digestion, preventing formation of thick fluids that can contribute to phlegm accumulation, swellings, and abscesses (see Shen-chu 16). These ingredients of Stemona Tablets enhance the spleen/stomach functions and treat dampness; they differentiate this formula from others that are used for acute infections, such as Isatis 6, Patrinia 7, Paris 7, and Ilex 15. Additionally, Stemona Tablets is suitable for treatment of fungal and amoebic infections (the others mentioned are usually used for viral or bacterial infections). Stemona Tablets can be used along with various antibiotic therapies to improve their effects and protect against side effects. It is also potentially useful for preventative purposes, taken daily during times of high susceptibility to infection.
