DX : Depression with Anxiety(both are established conditions).

Dr evaluated and prescribed one common medication(diazepam) for both conditions.

In this scenario, how we calculate the E&M points for table A ?

I am assuming you are talking about the Marshfield Clinic tool, which quantifies (assigns points) to the MDM portion? If yes, then I do not have enough information about the condition(s).
However, because Depression with Anxiety codes to F41.8, I would not split the conditions up, and count both separately. Instead I would look at it as one single condition, and depending on whether the condition is stable or worsening, assign 1 or 2 points.

Hope this helps!
