Brief Answer:
available as separate drugs.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
I can understand your concerns.

The drug deanxit (flupentixol+melitracen) has been banned.

There is no exact substitute of this drug.
But flupentixol is available in combination with escitalopram and melitracen is available as a separate drug.(prescription drugs).

You can take the two drugs together.
Kindly consult your doctor for a valid prescription.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
