In order to provide a reference for clinical research and prescription of insomnia by analyzing the distribution of syndrome types and medication rules of TCM, treating insomnia from the perspective of heart. We retrieved the "literatures on treating insomnia of the heart" from CNKI and established the database from December 2011 to December 2021. And we statistically analyzed the literature types, syndrome type distribution, and medication rule. Resultly, among the 828 literatures included, 718 literatures related to clinical research were the most, accounting for 87% of the total, involving a total of 24 syndrome types, among which, heart spleen deficiency (417 cases, 52%) and disharmony between heart and kidney (256 cases, 32%) accounted for the highest proportion. The most commonly used prescription for insomnia with heart spleen deficiency was spleen-restored decoction. The most frequently used drugs were semen ziziphi spinosae, Astragalus membranaceus, and Angelica sinensis. The most commonly used prescription for disharmony between heart and kidney insomnia was self-made prescription, and the most frequently used drugs were Coptis chinensis, cinnamon, and semen ziziphi spinosae. In conclusion, treating insomnia of the mind has a rich theoretical and clinical basis and can be dialectically used in clinics.
