In recent years, the Japanese herbal medicine yokukansan has been used in Japan as a treatment for dementia. For thousands of years, yokukansan has been utilized to control night terrors in children and manage restlessness and aggression in children. In 2010, the Japanese Society of Neurology recommended yokukansan for managing dementia symptoms.

Researchers explored the potential of yokukansan's active components to cross the blood-brain barrier in animal trials. Overcoming the challenge of delivering medicines to the brain, the study used chromatography, as discussed in the article "Online Solid Phase Extraction and LC/MS Analysis of Thyroid Hormones in Human Serum." The findings suggest the feasibility of delivering ingredients into the brain, offering potential benefits for dementia treatment.

Common prescription examples include addressing heightened irritability and anger:

Insomnia: Acts on the autonomic nervous system to calm heightened nervousness, mental anxiety, and tension.

Teeth grinding (bruxism): Acts on the autonomic nervous system to relax muscle tension and alleviate symptoms.

Childhood night crying: Considered effective for intense, high-pitched crying at night. It is sometimes administered to both the child and the mother simultaneously, as the cause of a child's night crying is often attributed to the mother's anxiety and irritability.

Dementia: Individuals with dementia often experience peripheral symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, depression, excitement, wandering, and delusions alongside the main symptoms of dementia. Yokukansan is said to be effective for these peripheral symptoms and is commonly used.
