    Dong Quai rarely used for menopause in Chinese medicine. This is a poorly researched article. For hot flashes, consider something *cooling* (Dong Quai is warming). for mood swings, consider the formula (that includes Dong Quai) "kami syoyo san" as the Japanese call it. For vaginal dryness, you'll want something that nourishes fluids such as "rehmannia six pills" or "liu wei di huang wan".

    Many people use a variation of that rehmannia six (called Rehmannia eight or zhi bai di huang wan) for hot flashes. While that formula works for many, it isn't for everybody. Best to get a consultation from someone trained in traditional Chinese medicine.
