 Does TCM have standardized dosages?

Physicians will generally consider the recommended dosage listed in pharmacopoeia during their consultations. However, due to variations in the quality of herbs as well as a person's individual condition, physicians tend to vary somewhat from the recommended dosage. The Hong Kong Department of Health, in conjunction with The Chinese University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Baptist University, has developed standards for commonly used herbs.
