someone correct me if i'm wrong, but "rebound anxiety" is when you discontinue a medication but then you feel symptoms that are worse than the ones you were originally treated for (i.e. you were given a benzo for moderate anxiety but after discontiunation of the benzo you have high anxiety), "rebound anxiety" and "withdrawal" are similar in that you suffer after discontinuing the medication because your brain has become dependent on the medication.
You don't mention any worsening of your symptoms from discontinuing your meds, so I would think what you're experiencing is a return of the same level of anxiety that your med was working well for (and if you felt it during use of your med it would be called "breakthrough anxiety", which is why many psy docs prefer using benzos with long durations of action like klonopin and xaxax-xr)
