Welcome to Health Care Magic and thank you for asking the query.
In my opinion you can take Cipralex 10 mg. Cipralex contains escitalopram that is an antidepressant and can also be used to treat anxiety.

It is a Selective serotonin reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI) and can be taken with mild ischemic white matter. SSRI also have mild anti-platelet actions so you need to adjust the dose of other anti-platelets if you are taking to decrease the risk of bleeding tendency.

I hope you find this helpful.
