Bidens pilosa was first published in "Supplement Medica" with clear nature and flavor and outstanding curative effect. Modern pharmacological studies have found that it mainly contains flavonoids, phenolic acids, volatile oils, amino acids, trace elements and other chemical components, which have the effects of liver protection, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, immune regulation, anti-tumor and so on. In this paper, the seven flavors of Chinese medicines such as Huanglian, Yin Chen, Poria, Ephedra, Summer Hay, Psyllium, Changshan and Bidens pilosa were selected with high frequency of drug use through excavation and analysis of the commonly used medicine of Bidens pilosa.The results found that Bidens pilosa can be compatible with Huanglian can treat dysentery, with Yin Chen can treat jaundice,with poria cocos can treat diarrhea, with Ephedra can treat colds, with Prunella can treat cancer,with Psyllium can treat gonorrhea, with Changshan can treat malaria. The advantages of matching treatment can provide certain ideas and methods for clinical prescription drug selection.
