相关论述
1《本草纲目》:“小通草,色白而气寒,味淡而体轻,故入太阴肺经,引热下降而利小便;入阳明胃经,通气上达而下乳汁;其气寒,降也,其味淡,开也。”  
2《本草正义》:“小通草,其气味则李东垣《用药法象》谓甘淡无毒。案此甘字,非大甜之谓,实即淡字,如泉水、食米皆谓味甘之例。此物无气无味,以淡用事,故能通行经络,清热利水,性与木通相似,但无其苫,则泄降之力缓而无峻厉之弊,虽能通利,不甚伤阴,湿热之不甚者宜之。若热甚闭结之症,必不能及木通之捷效,东垣谓利阴窍,治五淋,除水肿癃,亦惟轻症乃能有功耳。又谓泻肺利小便,与灯草同功,盖皆色白而气味轻清,所以亦能上行,泄肺之热切,宣其上窍,则下窍自利,说亦可取。”
