Thank you for getting back to us.
I agree with your doctor's opinion on xanax that the risk of seizures is higher in people on higher doses for a longer duration.
It is uncommon for stroke to occur in a 35-year old. But in India, we are seeing more and more people in their 30s and 40s with ischemic stroke. We usually find causes, such as high BP or high serum homocysteine or abnormal lipid levels. However, in a minority of patients, no cause can be found, called as cryptogenic or idiopathic strokes.
You are on correct medications to prevent the recurrence of strokes.
I agree that you have some symptoms of anxiety and some people do feel that way after stroke. However, as you remain well & healthy later on, these symptoms would go away on their own.
