Best Answer

You should be couscous when taking herbs and western medicine together. You should always have the advise of a qualified practitioner of TCM or Chinese herbalism before taking this kind of herb. Its powerful stuff. A qualified practitioner will know about any western interactions. I don't know of any interactions with Xiao Yan San, but this doesn't mean that the herbal formula is right for you. Go see a professional. Chinese Herbs can be very effective at treating infertility, but only when they are prescribed correctly.

What is the difference between xiao yao wan and xiao yao pian?

Xiao Yao Wan and Xiao Yao Pian are very similar. Essentially, "wan" means pill and "pian" means tablet. Since this is a traditional Chinese formula, the contents should not change. However, traditional, "wan" is made with ground up herbs mixed with honey and rolled into small balls. "Pian" may only be compressed herb powder, without the honey. Xiao Yao San (the traditional name, "san" means powder") is often used for stress. More specifically, it is for Liver Qi Stagnation with Blood Defiency or Liver Overacting Spleen disharmony.
