    I am afraid I would need some clarification to try answer your questions. In the United States CPM would mean Central Pontine Myelinolysis which is a relatively rare disease that happens in people who have a low blood sodium that is corrected too quickly. EPM is a disease of horses. I think you may be referring to something else and your doctors are using different terms than wee use here.

    Also, I am not familiar with either drug that you refer to either. They may have different names or may not be available in this country.

    I am hapy to try and answer your questions but I will need more information. I am sorry I could not be more help.
    After your stroke you may be experiencing a new normal, but remember what George Eliot said- It is never too late to be what you might have been. You still can achieve new goals.
