Tenaxit consists of two well known and well proven compounds: flupentixol- a neuroleptic with anxiolytic and antidepressant properties of its own when given in small doses, and melitracen – a bipolar thymoleptic with activating properties in low doses. In combination the compounds render a preparation with antidepressant, anxiolytic and activating properties.
