Yes.: Flupenthixol is a combination of Melitracin, a tricyclic antidepressant and flupenthixol, an antipsychotic medication. It is not approved in the UK but is approved in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and S. Africa. In low doses, as a tablet, it is used as antidepressant but an injectable Decanoate form , injected every 2-3 weeks is used for Schizophrenia.
