The Herbal Medicine, known as Manyougan (万葉丸, "10,000-leaf pills") in Japanese, is a restorative consumable item that can be found and used in the Fatal Frame series . It can be found scattered in various locations of each game, and it is one of the most common items throughout the series.

The amount of health herbal medicine heals is limited, usually about one-third to one-half of the total health bar, and the amount healed decreases as the difficulty setting of the game increases. Herbal medicine can be used anytime through the Menu screen, provided the player's health is not full.

  • In Fatal Frame IV: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse, the container still has the same design as its previous titles. However, the body of the container is more tan colored. The container's top still remains its traditional brown color with the Japanese Kaji hand-painted on its side.
