Tang-kuei Tablets is a formula intended to deliver a large dose of Tang-kuei, which is sometimes used as a single herb remedy in China. Tang-kuei nourishes blood, vitalizes blood, relaxes muscles, invigorates the spleen, and helps regulate menstruation; it does not have significant hormonal effects. Here, tang-kuei is complemented by other herbs that emphasize its functions. The formula, like the single herb, has a warm nature. The basic formula is similar to Tang-kuei and Ginseng Eight Combination (Bazhen Tang; see Song Formulas and Pine Mountain Ba Zhen Wan), but the proportion of tang-kuei has been increased. The ingredients of that formula are tang-kuei, peony, rehmannia, and cnidium for nourishing blood and invigorating blood circulation, and codonopsis, atractylodes, hoelen, and licorice for tonifying qi to aid in nourishing blood. Four ingredients are added here: cyperus and saussurea to regulate qi and warm the central circulation, and deer antler and psoralea to invigorate the bone marrow, which will contribute to blood cell production. In cases where a heat syndrome is present, one would use Tang-kuei 18 instead; for cases of blood stasis syndrome, one might use Millettia 9 instead or in addition to Tang-kuei Tablets. See also Wu Ji Bai Feng Wan (Pine Mountain), which is a warming qi and blood nourishing formula with a wide range of tonics. Antler 8 and Pantosterone (White Tiger) can be used as adjunct formulations, in relatively small quantities, to provide additional deer antler. Dang Gui Pian (Pine Mountain) can be used in small quantities to increase the amount of tang-kuei, cnidium, and cyperus provided by this more complex formula.
