Brief Answer:
Drugs available separately.

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

Tancodep contains diazepam and imipramine. The combination is banned but both the drugs are available separately.
You can get diazepam 5mg and take half tablet. Imipramine is available in strength of 25mg.

As these are prescription drugs, you will need a valid prescription for it.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.
