Medicine Information

If your child has prolonged tonic-clonic seizure over 5 minutes long you will be prescribed a drug called buccal midazolam. This comes in a pre-filled syringe which is easily given in the child's mouth. The brands mostly commonly used are Epistatus and Buccolam.

The links below have information on how to administer the medication:
