Hello Sid94,

Among Chinese, SU XIAO JIU XIN WAN is an important medicine for
treating coronary heart disease and angina pectoris. It is known as an
instant cardio-reliever pill because of its fast effect in the body.
This medicine is made from Chinese medicinal herbs mainly Rhizoma
Ligusticichuanxiong and Bomeolum Syntheticum. Its high speed reaction
and no side effects made it a popular drug recognized not only in
China but throughout the world.

specific medicine through local Chinese apothecaries in your area. To

The store I bought my SU XIAO JIU XIN WAN from in California no longer
can get this for me.  The medicine sounds different from the sucking
kind you mentioned.  I was not aware that this heart medicine came in
other forms than the kind I wish.  I need to be able to have a source
in the U.S. that has a phone number so I can describe the little white
box, containing two tiny ceramic bottles, that contains tiny little
balls.  I am not able to work very well with the sources in China.

Hi Sid94,

Thanks for making your clarification. You did not indicate in your
question that you were looking for a U.S. source. I'm not located in
the U.S. so I can't readily give you one. Please give me some time to
find one and I'll let you know. For the meantime, you could ask your
former supplier for other sources of this medicine. You can also
explore the links I gave you - particularly the first link. It leads
to a page where you can conveniently make an online purchase. With
regards to the "sucking kind", that came from the description of the
product in the first link.

With regards to the source I have given you, including the product
description, administration, etc., the information came from the
product itself and I'm in no way representing any company I mentioned
in the answer. Please remember that Google Answers is not a source of
authoritative medical advice as expressed in the "Important
Disclaimer" at the bottom this page. The material I've presented is

Hello again Sid94 and sorry that it took me this long to reply. In
response to your clarification I made a thorough search of the results
of my new search. I even sought the help of my American colleagues to
help me locate U.S.-based Chinese drugstores that may not be found
online. The results below are the only related Chinese drugstores that
I found. I hope you understand that Chinese drugstores are not as
numerous as the usual kind and most of them are not listed or
mentioned in the Internet. Though I can't find any indication that the
following sells the drug you are seeking, you can always contact them
to verify. They may be able to refer you to a dealer that sells one.

Thanks for the good research!!  You were able to find the medicine I
was looking for at the Eastern Chinese Medicine Wholesale Retail
Company site.  It is the 4th item down with the red heart but for
$23.00.  That is what my doctor charges and I was hoping to get it for
$9.95, the price I was charged from my old California store, East
Earth Trade Winds (who no longer carries it).  I guess Eastern Chinese
Medicine Wholesale Retail Company was not selling it to me retail.  If
ever you find this medicine cheaper than $23.00, do let me know. 
Thanks for your good work.  If I do not hear further, I will assume
that we can't get it cheaper.

Thanks for your confirmation. It was the item I was referring to in
the very first link of my initial answer so I was really surprised
with your March 24, clarification. Having read that, I took it that
you want other possible sources and so I continued searching. It took
me quite a long while to get back to you for the follow-up answer.
With the kind of searching I did on my initial answer and the
follow-up answer in response to your first clarification, I can tell
you that I won't be able to find any other possible sources nor any
price lower than $23.00. The Eastern Chinese Medicine Wholesale and
Retail Company is selling the product wholesale per box. I'm sorry to
say that $23.00 is the price of this particular medicine.
