N05A - Antipsychotics
N05C - Hypnotics and sedatives
Usually the presence of an anxiolytic (or other psycholeptics) in combined preparations must be regarded as being of secondary importance and the preparations should be classified in the respective therapeutic groups (e.g. A03C - Antispasmodics in combination with psycholeptics, N02 - Analgesics).
Combined preparations used mainly for the treatment of anxiety are classified at separate 5th levels using the corresponding 50-series.
The group is subdivided according to chemical structure.
