Our expert says:
Strokes, which may be of different kinds ( related to clotting in blood vessels or bleeds from them ) inevitably cause damage to the brain, with effets that vary according to which areas of brain have been damaged, and how well or poorly other areas of brain adjust and compensate for such damage. One possible result, which I know can be very had to live with, can include sudden violent temper tantrums. Medications can help to deal with this, but this requires a proper ongoing assessment by a neurologist or shrink, and careful balancing of the potential meds.
This needs to be discussed with the doc who assessed her and prescribed the treatment she is not taking properly. And especially as there is the issue of potential risk to herself, others, and particularly the children, the psychiatrist / neurologist may well consider intervening to protect her and everyone else exposed to her
