Drugs for depression, epilepsy and psychosis have been included under the mental health list and among non-communicable diseases, drugs for rheumatic fever, rheumatic heart disease, hypertension, congestive cardiac failure, heart attack and diabetes mellitus, have been included in the list, according to Shrestha.
