Hi, I found your question in a google search on ankle clonus and anxiety and had to respond because I'm in a very similar situation. My son will be 11 last month, has been on Prozac for anxiety for almost 2 years now, also 20 mg a day. At his routine neurological exam last week he had ankle clonus, which was never present in earlier exams. The doctor ordered an MRI of the brain, which he is having this Monday. I'm very worried because everything I see on the internet seems to show that ankle clonus always means brain lesion or tumor or some other horrible cause. He doesn't have any other symptoms other than the ankle clonus. Have you gotten any answers since your post about your son? I can totally relate to what you're going through as I'm in the same boat.
